NAPA Rising Up to America’s Alzheimer’s Challenge

U.S. CapitolVIDEO

See how NAPA (National Alzheimer’s Project Act) legislation is galvanizing U.S. efforts to combat Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Learn how it supports patients and their caregivers.

This 5-minute video about the 2012 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit features NIH officials explaining the progress being made in the United States through NAPA.

Under NAPA, all federal agencies involved with Alzheimer’s are working together, under the leadership of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to realize the goals set forth in the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease. A Federal Advisory Council on Research, Care, and Services, made up of federal, state, local, and private sector officials and advocates, is helping guide implementation of the plan.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
