Coming Tuesday, August 23, the Alzheimer’s Association Houston and Southeast Texas Chapter will hold a public input session to solicit views, comments and perspectives from stakeholders in the Alzheimer’s community to inform the development of a successful National Alzheimer’s Plan.
The recommendations and comments expressed during these input sessions, taking place across the country in August, will be collected and shared this fall with officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the agency charged with developing a national plan to address the escalating public health crisis.
The input session will be held 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at First Colony Branch Library 2121 Austin Pkwy. in Sugar Land.
Fort Bend County residents, including those living with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers, representatives from the state and local government, the research community, health systems and long-term care facilities are invited to come out and share their thoughts about what elements need to be addressed to help those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.
These input sessions mark the first step in building a national Alzheimer’s strategy for an already large, growing and diverse Alzheimer’s community.
