Community Input Sessions for NAPA Hosted by Alzheimer’s Association

NAPA Community Input Sessions by Alzheimer's Association August 2011The Alzheimer’s Association is hosting community input sessions all over the United States in August 2011 to gather feedback from various communities about their personal concerns regarding Alzheimer’s disease. These findings will then be documented in a report presented to the government for use implementing the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA), a law passed in January 2011 requiring the federal government to create a national strategic plan to address the growing crisis of Alzheimer’s disease for sufferers, caregivers, family and the healthcare industry.

This is your chance to voice your own opinion on the devastation of dementia, how this disease has negatively impacted your life, and the things that would help in your struggle. President Obama discusses NAPA and the community input sessions in the following video and stresses:

“You represent the front lines in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease.”
