Veterans Network

Veterans Network

VeteransAgainstAlzheimer’s is a national network of military leaders, veterans service organizations, researchers, clinicians focused on raising awareness of the impact of Alzheimer’s and other dementias on active and retired service members.

    Our Mission

  • Raise the profile of Alzheimer's disease as an urgent health issue for veterans.
  • Mobilize this community to demand the attention of industry leaders, community stakeholders and policymakers.
  • Increase veteran participation in brain health initiatives and clinical trials.
  • Improve support for family caregivers, relying on a culture of public service among active and retired service members and families.
  • Create public-private partnerships between veterans, the government, corporate, philanthropic and scientific communities to address the needs and diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.

Our Goal

  • Through advocacy and awareness in the military community, we are confident we can be of service. We have developed a VeteransAgainstAlzheimer's Network dedicated to mitigating the impact on veterans' families facing this disease and improving the care and support of these veterans and their families.
