Alzheimer's Advocacy

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer's research, prevention and care initiatives at the state and federal level.  We diligently work to make Alzheimer’s a national priority. Add your voice to ours - become an advocate today!

Our Advocates

Advocates are people with Alzheimer’s and related disorders, caregivers, friends, family members, and professionals who raise awareness and urge government to support research and care. Alzheimer's 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, increase access to community-based care, improve quality care in residential settings, and expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.

Ohio Advocacy

 The Central Ohio chapter is one of seven Ohio chapters of the Alzheimer's Association that participates in the Ohio Council for advocacy. Please click here for additional information about The Ohio Council and for current advocacy efforts.

National Advocacy

Our nation must have an effective blueprint and a serious financial investment in order to avert the Alzheimer's crisis. Policymakers must enact public policies aimed at preventing this disease as well as providing better health and long-term care coverage to ensure high-quality, cost-effective care for people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

The Central Ohio Chapter has an Ambassador and advocate volunteers identified for the following Congressional districts. We meet several times a year with your U. S. Representative. and do our best to keep them informed of critical issues needing their support.  You are encouraged to join our Ambassador teams.

  • Ohio House District #3 -- Congresswoman Joyce Beatty -- Ambassador:  James Ragland
  • Ohio House District #12 -- Congressman Pat Tiberi  -- Ambassador:  Evan DuBro
  • Ohio House District #15 -- Congressman Steve Stivers  -- Ambassador:  Lori Wengerd

Visiting Washington, DC?

Are you going to Washington, DC, for a vacation this year? Would you be interested in joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease? If you have time while in Washington, DC, we can help arrange a meeting with your member of Congress. You will have the opportunity to discuss the legislative priorities of the Alzheimer’s Association and ask your member of Congress to make fighting Alzheimer’s disease a national priority!
