The Alzheimer’s Association--Arkansas Chapter invites you to become an Alzheimer advocate. Join us and speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families.
Join us for Walk to End Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer advocates play an important role in improving the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by working to improve dementia care and services; improve access to community-based care; improve quality care in residential settings; and expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.
As an advocate, you will:
Walk to End Alzheimer's - Each of our walks hosts a public policy table and encourages walkers to sign up to become advocates.
Day on the Hill - During the 2014 Legislative Session, both staff and advocates will spend time at the Arkansas State Capitol to talk to our local representatives and attend committee meetings.
Capitol Hill - Alzheimer’s advocates from across the country gather at the Public Policy Forum to learn about key policy priorities and meet with Members of Congress to discuss Alzheimer’s issues.
