Event Details

Alzheimer's Advocacy Training

Join us on Tuesday, February 18, to learn more about how your voice can make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

Laura Darman, Esq., of Malkin & Ross, LLP will lead our Alzheimer’s Advocate Training session at Monroe Community Hospital.  The session, from 9 to 10 a.m., is free and open to anyone who wants to speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer’s and their families.

The training session will include an overview of opportunities to speak out, and Darman will offer tips for:

[object Object] Writing letters or emails to your local, state and federal representatives
[object Object] Making effective calls to your representative
[object Object] Getting the most out of a legislative visit, whether you see the legislator or a staff member.

Also, during the training you will be provided with an update on state and federal legislation that can help people with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones.

Advocates were instrumental in garnering bipartisan support for the National Alzheimer’s Project Act in 2011 and the resulting National Plan in 2012.  Advocates will be essential in continuing that momentum in the coming years.
