This morning, the House of Representatives passed the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA). The bill, which last week passed the Senate unanimously, will create a coordinated national plan to overcome the Alzheimer’s crisis through coordination and evaluation of Alzheimer’s research, care, and programs. The passage of NAPA in Congress would not have been possible without the efforts of advocates, who wrote over 50,000 emails to elected officials. We would encourage advocates to write an email to President Obama urging him to sign NAPA into law.
