Alzheimer's Advocacy in

The Alzheimer's Association, Miami Valley Chapter is the largest group in advocating on behalf of those living with Alzheimer's disease.

Take Action! Become an Advocate

Conquering Alzheimer’s is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery, and we need your help to change the future of this devastating disease.

As an advocate, you will be invited to engage public officials and policymakers in a variety of ways, urging their support for critical Alzheimer's legislation and policy changes. Whether you prefer sending emails to legislators, posting updates to Facebook, or hosting events or even meeting in-person with your elected officials, there are many ways you can make a difference as an Alzheimer's Association Advocate.

Become a part of our advocate community today.

Policies

Federal Policy

Alzheimer's is a devastating disease that cannot be ignored by federal policymakers. Our goal is to see that the federal government takes bold action now to confront this growing crisis. Urge your elected officials to enact public policies that provide better health and long-term coverage to ensure high-quality, cost-effective care for the millions of people who face this disease every day.

State Policy

State governments are increasingly on the front lines in addressing health issues facing America. As a result, every state must tackle Alzheimer's not only as an aging issue but also as a public health crisis. Alzheimer's Association chapters across the nation work with state officials to determine regulatory and statutory standards for dementia training, provide access to respite care, designate spending for state long-term care services, control Medicaid spending, and in a variety of other ways to provide care and support for those facing this dreaded disease.

Upcoming Events

Look back and thank you!
On May 3, 2017, 41 volunteer constituent advocates visited Columbus to talk with state legislators about the importance of funding to support people living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.  They took an entire day from their busy schedules to help advocate for people living with the disease and some are themselves living with dementia.  Click here for a short commemorative video to say THANK YOU and as a way for everyone to remember the day.
