Washington D.C. Policy Forum a great success in 2013
More than 30 advocates from the Bay and Granite states traveled to Washington D.C. for the 25th Annual Public Policy Forum. They were treated to three days of learning, hearing supportive speeches from celebrities such as David Hyde-Pierce and Glen Campbell and meeting with the Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill.
With great support from the majority of our elected officials, our chapter effectively advocated for the HOPE for Alzheimer's Act and the Bi-partisan Alzheimer's Disease Task Force. We cannot wait to return next year to continue our efforts to end Alzheimer's disease, raise public awareness and make our voices heard.
Please consider joining us next year for this great event, April 2014.
