A Minute

Advancing a cause, improving the lives of millions of Americans and changing the course of Alzheimer’s disease. Each of these things can be a major, time-consuming proposition.

But sometimes real change can come from something you do in a minute or less. A vote. A signature. Even a quick “Thank You”. Sometimes a minute can make all the difference.

Please take a minute and urge your member of Congress to join the Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease

The Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease is a bipartisan group working to bring the mounting Alzheimer's crisis to the forefront of the congressional agenda. Led in the House by Co-Chairs Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-MA), Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ), and by  Senator Susan M. Collins (R-ME) and Senator Mark R. Warner (D-VA) in the Senate, the Task Force has been instrumental in raising awareness and securing funding for research.

Nearly every minute someone in America develops Alzheimer’s. So, every minute that passes without action from Congress increases the devastating impact this disease has on families, caregivers and our nation. Please take a minute to act now.

Meet Congress

Please join fellow advocates and Alzheimer’s Association staff as they hold a series of vital meetings with members of Congress.
