Alzheimer's Advocacy in

The Alzheimer's Association, Northern California and Northern Nevada 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.

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.

In California we are working with state officials to tackle Alzheimer's disease not just as an aging issue but as a public health crisis. In 2011, the Alzheimer's Association and the California Department of Human Services released the California State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease, which includes recommendations to California policymakers to help the state prepare for the coming Alzheimer's epidemic and improve conditions for people with the disease and their families.
