Thursday's program will give participants all the information and training you need to be an effective advocate for positive change with your legislators, and give you a chance to meet and practice with your assigned team mates. On Friday March 5, you and your meeting team will participate in 1-3 meetings that we'll schedule for you. We'll do our best to work with your schedules. The centerpiece of our advocacy will be our sponsored bill, Senate Bill 48, to require general internists and family physicians in California to take at least 4 hours of continuing education on dementia as part of their biennial CME requirement. We will also be supporting other elements of the recently-released Master Plan for Aging and the Governor's proposed $17 million in state budget funding for Alzheimer's research, care and support.
