WASHINGTON, DC (September 25, 2017) – Following is a statement by George Vradenburg, Co-Founder and Chairman of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, about the Graham-Cassidy health care bill which is currently before the U.S. Senate.

“Americans living with Alzheimer’s need help. What they don’t need is the Graham-Cassidy health care bill which poses a real threat to the five million people and their families dying from the disease. 

In recognition of World Alzheimer’s Day, Connected Living, a provider of social networking services to families and senior citizens, announced today that it has pledged to donate 15 percent of all proceeds from their app services to UsAgainstAlzheimer's (UsA2), an innovative nonprofit organization demanding – and delivering – a solution to Alzheimer’s.

(Note: There will be a media briefing and Q&A at 11am EDT September 7 by Alzheimer’s XPRIZE team participants. Dial-in #800-550-1215, International 1-213-233-3011. Please RSVP to Robyn Reynolds at rreynolds@agewave.com.)

The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies has advanced a fiscal year 2018 funding bill that would increase Alzheimer’s research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by $414 million, part of a $1.1 billion overall increase at NIH.

UsAgainstAlzheimer’s has issued the following statements, remembering and honoring music icon Glen Campbell, who died today following an arduous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Campbell, who was 81 years old, was diagnosed with the disease in 2011, and he, his wife Kim Campbell and their family have fought fearlessly to make progress against this disease and support caregivers.
