Support the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act

13 Nov

Today, we rally together in support of the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 2076/H.R. 4256)! We need your voice to help urge Congress to support this important legislation that would improve the quality of life for all Americans facing this devastating disease.

There are 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s and 16.1 million who provide care. The BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act would facilitate translational, cutting-edge research, like recent findings from the SPRINT MIND study, into public health interventions through the CDC’s traditional public health strategies.

Join us in calling on Congress to support the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 2076/H.R. 4256) to address Alzheimer’s as an urgent public health issue. For more information, visit: p2a.co/YVJ6QYQ
