What does your role entail? Since 2008, I have remained as a Public Policy, now Advocacy committee, member. In 2010, after attending my first Alzheimer’s Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C. I founded the 5th sub-committee of our kind in the nation focusing on young advocates. YAAA!, Young Advocates for the Alzheimer’s Association acts as a subcommittee of the Desert Southwest Chapter Advocacy Committee, and is open to adults aged 18-39 who are interested in furthering awareness of dementia-related issues and Alzheimer’s advocacy efforts. I am also an Ambassador appointed to Senator John McCain by the National Alzheimer’s Association. Ambassadors are grassroots volunteers selected to serve as the main point of in-district contact for a targeted member of Congress. We play a critical role in helping the Alzheimer’s Association meet its federal legislative goals. We directly with National and chapter staff to implement federal advocacy activities at the community level.
I’m impressed, I must say. Really seldom do I run across a blog that’s both educative and enjoyable, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is marvellous ; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this.
