LEAD offers support for a White House Conference on Aging in 2015!
Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer's Disease (LEAD Coalition) deeply appreciates and applauds President
Obama and the Administration for historic leadership in addressing Alzheimer’s disease and related
dementias from signing into law the National Alzheimer’s Project Act and issuing the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease, to winning record increases in research and support funding and bringing American leadership to the global dementia effort. These and so many other efforts by this Administration to take dementia out of
the shadows and onto center stage as a national priority give us full confidence as we offer our
robust support to the convening of a White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) in 2015.
We encourage the Administration and all those involved in planning and implementing the 2015 WHCOA
to integrate Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias as a crosscutting theme in every convening,
each analysis, and all recommendations because no one -- and no issue -- is beyond the devastating
reach of dementia.
