Thank you Rep. DelBene | Letter

The Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act has just been signed into law and I want to thank Congresswoman Suzan DelBene for having been a cosponsor of this meaningful legislation.

The BOLD Act will allow effective Alzheimer’s public health interventions to be implemented across the country.

This is important to me because I lost my father to Alzheimer’s disease. My mother is also currently suffering the effects of dementia.

Every 65 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease — which is why Congress must remain committed to action on this devastating disease.

By applying a public health approach to reduce risk, detect early symptoms and advance care, Congresswoman DelBene is helping to change the trajectory of this devastating disease.
