Senate Special Committee on Aging to Hold Alzheimer’s Hearing April 6
U.S. Senator Susan Collins, the Chairman of the Senate Aging Committee and Co-Chair of the Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s disease, and Senator Claire McCaskill, the Ranking Member of the Senate Aging Committee, will hold a hearing on Alzheimer’s disease on April 6th at 2:30 PM EDT. The hearing, titled, “Finding a Cure: Assessing Progress Toward the Goal of Ending Alzheimer’s by 2025,” will examine the progress made in combating Alzheimer’s disease since the enactment of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) in 2011 and assess the next steps needed to achieve the ultimate objective of finding a means to treat, cure, or —best of all— prevent Alzheimer’s. The Aging Committee’s hearing will highlight the tremendous human and economic toll that Alzheimer’s takes on our nation, as well as the compelling need to change the trajectory of the disease.
