Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in America. Over the next 40 years, caring for people with Alzheimer’s will cost our country $20 trillion, with nearly 60 percent of that borne by Medicare. If we had a treatment that delayed onset of Alzheimer’s by just five years, Medicare spending would be reduced on those with the disease by 45 percent in 2050. Congress and the President passed a historic $350 million increase for Alzheimer's research in late 2015. This increase is a significant step forward in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. But there's more to be done.
Please urge your elected representatives in Washington to continue to throw their full support behind making Alzheimer's a top priority on Capitol Hill.
Congress must act on Alzheimer’s!
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Alzheimer's Association.
Dear [Decision Maker],
