“I’ve been working with scientists at the cutting edge of Alzheimer’s research for decades, and I’ve never been more optimistic than I am today. But to capitalize on these immediate scientific opportunities, we need to dramatically ramp up Alzheimer’s research. There’s no more powerful way to get Washington to do its part than to support the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement. I’ve spent my career in medical research and health policy. No organization has achieved results in Washington right out of the gate like AIM has delivered in its first years of existence. I am an AIM member. If you want to end this disease as quickly as possible, you should be too.

– Dr. Bill Thies, Senior Scientist in Residence, Alzheimer’s Association

“In the lead up to the 2016 elections, AIM joined with the Alzheimer’s Association in tireless work to ensure Alzheimer’s disease entered the national spotlight on the campaign trail. And, we succeeded! Throughout Presidential, Congressional and Gubernatorial campaigns, Alzheimer’s disease emerged as a key focus. Now the election season is over, but our work in important ways is starting anew, as it always must and always will until we reach our goal. AIM is bringing the Alzheimer’s disease crisis to the attention of all our elected officials so they will take the actions we need. But how effectively AIM does so, depends on people like you and me - the heart of our movement.

– Brenda Bouchard, Caregiver, 2016 AIM Advocate of the Year
