FEDERAL PRIORITIES


Today, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. As America continues on its current path of aging, by 2050, those living with the disease will more than triple. And though already our nation's most expensive disease, the economic burden of Alzheimer's will more than quadruple in that same time. Alzheimer's is a growing public health crisis for our families and the economy. The federal government must address the challenges the disease poses and take bold action to confront this urgent crisis, now.

The Alzheimer's Impact Movement is committed to working with the federal government on policies that improve the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's.
