National Research Funding

As the current COVID-19 pandemic has shown, continued research is absolutely critical to understanding and responding to diseases, and Alzheimer’s is no different. Please take a stand today. Send a message to your members of Congress urging them to pass the 2021 fiscal year budget with $354 million in additional Alzheimer’s research funding for the NIH and $20 million to implement the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act at the CDC. Congress needs to hear from you that increasing research funding is necessary to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Please add your voice to ours. Speak out today.
