Missouri Alzheimer's State Plan Task Force
The Missouri Alzheimer’s State Plan Task Force was commissioned to address the Alzheimer’s crisis in our state. The task force convened community forums to hear the concerns of Missouri citizens across the state, including individuals living with the disease, family caregivers, and key stakeholders. In November 2010, the Task Force published a State Plan for combating Alzheimer’s in Missouri that addressed the above concerns raised at the forums.
