Poll Shows Americans favor increase in federal funding for Alzheimer’s research

Posted October 8, 2010

A new poll shows 88 percent of registered voters believe it is important for Congress to make Alzheimer’s a priority despite a growing budget deficit. The poll was conducted by USAgainst Alzheimer’s, a Washington, DC group formed specifically to “mobilize America to stop Alzheimer’s by 2020” through aggressive lobbying and support of legislators who support increased funding for Alzheimer’s care and research. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund applauds their efforts and certainly agrees with the need for more resources and a focused strategy at the National level.
