Lend your name to our petition to tell the new Congress that Alzheimer's matters to Latinos
Latinos are about 1.5 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than whites.
The number of Latinos with Alzheimer's disease is predicted to grow 600 percent by 2050.
LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's is the nation’s first-ever coalition of national Latino organizations focused on raising awareness of Alzheimer's impact on the Latino community. LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s works to raise the profile of Alzheimer's disease as an urgent Latino health issue that demands the attention of industry leaders, community stakeholders and policymakers.
Convened by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, coalition members include:
The Hispanic Federation
The Latino Alzheimer’s & Memories Disorders Alliance (LAMDA)
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)
MANA - A National Latina Organization
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA)
The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN)
