This morning, I came across one of the best articles I’ve seen in awhile. I was literally cheering on the inside as I hung on each word! In this piece, caregiver, blogger, and advocate Allan Vann adapted remarks recently made at a hearing sponsored by Congressman Steve Israel, D-NY (see below for more information).

The Alzheimer’s Solutions Summit, an intergovernmental hearing, was held on July 1, 2014 at the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation. The hearing was initiated and chaired by Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY), co-hosted with State Senator Jack Martins (R-NY) and Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D-NY). I was invited by Congressman Israel to testify as part of a caregiver panel. In my allotted 5 minutes I discussed three major issues from my caregiver’s perspective. Following that hearing, I submitted my remarks for consideration as a blog posting on the website of USAgainstAlzheimer’s, a 501(c)(4) organization engaging in public advocacy, federal relations, grassroots activity, and voter education. -Allan Vann
