Since its founding in 1999, the bipartisan Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease has worked to advance research and public awareness of Alzheimer’s and all dementia by bringing the disease to the forefront of the congressional agenda.
Led in the 117th Congress by House Co-Chairs Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA-43), Chris Smith (R-NJ-4) and Senate Co-Chairs Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Mark Warner (D-VA), Ed Markey (D-MA) and Pat Toomey (R-PA), this task force has been instrumental in helping the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease.
