The North Georgia Regional Office of the Alzheimer's Association is hosting
two advocacy sessions in preparation for Alzheimer's Awareness Day at the
capitol in Atlanta on Feb. 12.
The first scheduled program was held last Tuesday at the Rome-Floyd County
The purpose of the programs is to discuss pending legislative issues dealing
with Alzheimer's disease and related elder care. In addition, those who wish to
attend Awareness Day at the capitol will learn more about the event at these
trainings. For more information or to register, call 1-800-272-3900.
North Georgia residents will join more than 300 statewide advocates for
Alzheimer's disease and related disorders Thursday, Feb. 12, for Alzheimer's Awareness
Day at the state capitol.
The North Georgia Regional Office is providing transportation from the
Dalton office and will pick up advocates in Calhoun and Cartersville as well.
There is no charge, but registration is required in order to plan meals and
materials. This year, advocates may prepare signs and videos to take with them
to share with legislators and other advocates across the state.
Anyone who cares about those with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias is
encouraged to participate.
