It’s time to come together for the cause!
A new report confirms what many of us may have long suspected: More people are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease than statistics currently show.
The official journal of the American Academy of Neurology and a leading peer-reviewed publication, Neurology, published a groundbreaking study from researchers at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago that attributes more than 500,000 deaths in 2010 to Alzheimer’s disease – an amount more than six times the number reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The study’s findings place Alzheimer’s deaths nearly on par with cancer deaths.
We hope this will serve as a call-to-action for Advocates to ride the bus to Nashville later this month for Alzheimer’s Tennessee Day on the Hill on March 25.
Day on the Hill
Tuesday, March 25 – Join us!
Join fellow Alzheimer’s Tennessee Advocates and take your VOICE to Nashville with us on Legislative Day! Join us and share your story to advocate for others who can no longer speak for themselves.
Advocacy is a major component of Alzheimer’s Tennessee’s mission. Advocates are people with Alzheimer’s and related disorders — along with their caregivers, friends and families — whose voices together are a powerful tool for change and hope of a future without Alzheimer’s.
