Advocacy Day at the Texas Capitol

The Texas Chapters of the Alzheimer's Association will host Alzheimer's Advocacy Day on March 12, 2013 at the Texas Capitol in Austin. Advocacy Day is an opportunity for you to meet with lawmakers to discuss Alzheimer's disease and how it affects individuals and families across Texas.

All advocates will receive special advocacy training prior to meeting with elected officials, including talking points and facts about Alzheimer's.

What is an advocate?

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:

  • Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues.
  • Stay on top of policy and legislative issues through alerts and updates.
  • Make calls or write to legislators to forward public policy priorities to improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s.

Texas advocacy

The Greater Dallas Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is currently working closely together with other Alzheimer's Association Chapters in Texas to collaborate on state issues relevant to our constituent concerns. The Texas Alzheimer's Collaborative was formed for this purpose.
