ALFA Alert – Protect Alzheimer’s Research

If members of Congress do not act soon, dramatic reductions in federal funding (known as the sequester) for medical research for Alzheimer’s disease will go into effect March 1, 2013.

If Congress does not act before March 1, institutions like the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will have budgets reduced by as much as $2 billion in 2013.  Sequestration is an inelegant tool for deficit reduction that would cut millions of dollars in Alzheimer's research and could stifle the work that scientists believe will help us stop Alzheimer's by 2025. We can't let this happen!

Please send our message to Congress urging them to prevent these drastic cuts.

Don’t forget—Please personalize your letter!  Personal stories are more impactful.  Please share your experiences with Alzheimer’s or other dementia with Congress.

TAKE ACTION TODAY!
