ADVOCACY: Join the Fight to End Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's Association San Antonio and South Texas Chapter

SASTX

Support the fight against Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's disease is one of the most critical public health issues in America. This is why we are unrelentingly advocating for public policies that increase critical research funding and support all those affected. Now is the time to join us. Help persuade policymakers to make Alzheimer's a national priority.

With help from our grassroots advocates, we've passed critical legislation and increased federal research funding five-fold since 2011. But our work isn’t done and we need dedicated advocates like you to build on this success in Congress and in every state capital. We’ll train you to advocate in a variety of ways, some of which take just an hour or two every few months. Whatever your experience and availability, we’re eager to have you on our advocacy team! Will you join us?

If you are interested or have questions, please contact Chelsea Rangel, Public Policy Coordinator for the San Antonio and South Texas Chapter at chrangel@alz.org.
