Tell Congress: Support Equity in Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials
We’re calling on Congress to ensure equity in Alzheimer’s and dementia research. Congress must pass the ENACT Act.
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most critical public health issues in America. That’s why the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM), the Alzheimer’s Association and our advocates are unrelenting. We fight to support Alzheimer's and dementia research funding and advance bipartisan legislation that will have a positive and meaningful impact on people living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers today and in the future.
With the support of volunteer advocates and bipartisan congressional champions we’re making an impact. Help us persuade policymakers to make Alzheimer’s a national priority.
We advocate for the more than 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, a progressive and fatal brain disease.
We’ve increased the federal investment in Alzheimer’s and dementia research funding more than seven-fold in the last decade.

The bipartisan Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) would ask the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test a different payment structure for dementia care management. This important bill has the potential to streamline today’s complicated health care maze for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
