The Alzheimer’s Association just sent out an email alert, urging Americans to write to Congress in support of three pieces of legislation.
1) The Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act of 2009 (S. 1492/H.R. 3286), authorizing $2 billion in research funding for Alzheimer’s disease.

3) The National Alzheimer’s Project Act (S. 3036/H.R. 4689) that calls for an integrated federal campaign to overcome Alzheimer’s disease.
