Federal Funding for Alzheimer's

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

This graphic depicts the federal commitment to Alzheimer's research compared to the commitment we make to other diseases.  All are worthy causes and deserve strong funding support.  However, the relatively small investment in Alzheimer's disease indicates how slow we have been to recognize the severity of the looming epidemic.

We recently posted that the National Alzheimer's Prevention Act was passed into law and we pointed out in that post that the law had no funding attached.  Please follow this blog, and encourage your friends to do so as well, and we will keep you informed about how to lend your voice to support an increase in funding for Alzheimer's research.
