NC Advocacy Day Legislator Leave Behind Support House Budget

Join us in Raleigh for our 2014 State Advocacy Day at the Capitol in Raleigh, NC!

 

In 2014 advocates from all over North Carolina conducted the very first Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Day at the NC Legislative Complex.  The event was a success.  Bringing together local advocates and their elected state officials to increase the awareness of Alzheimer's disease and related brain diseases that cause dementia.  House Bill 466 was introduced to form a task force to investigate the need for a state Alzheimer's disease plan.

Join us on May 21, 2014 as we again, take the lawn between the legislative buildings to bring our message of hope to North Carolina.  180,000 North Carolinians are suffering with Alzheimer's.  Many more are undiagnosed, and the cost of care is destroying North Carolina families.  Stand with us by registering below, and join us and let your voice be heard on May 21, 2014.

People like you.
