The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer research, prevention and care initiatives at the state and federal level. We diligently work to make Alzheimer's a national priority.Today, the Association reaches millions of people affected by Alzheimer's across the globe through our national office and more than 75 local chapters. As the largest donor-supported, voluntary health organization for Alzheimer's, the Association is a catalyst for advancements in Alzheimer research and care.* We develop policy resources, including Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures and Changing the Trajectory of Alzheimer's Disease, to educate decision makers on the economic and emotional toll that Alzheimer's takes on families and the nation. * Our advocates engage elected officials at all levels of government and participate in our annual Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum, a march on Capitol Hill to meet with elected representatives. * With our chapters, we work to pass legislation at the federal, state and local level.
