On August 24, Alzheimer's Association Long Island will hold a public input session to solicit views, comments and perspectives from stakeholders in the Alzheimer's community to assist in the development of a successful National Alzheimer's Plan. The recommendations and comments expressed during these input sessions, taking place across the country in August, will be collected and shared this fall with officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the agency charged with developing a national plan to address the escalating public health crisis. The Input session will be held at the Farmingdale State College, 2350 Broadhollow Road, Farmingdale, from 7-9 p.m., inside Gleeson Hall at Room 202.

Eastern Nassau and western Suffolk residents - including those living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, representatives from the state and local governments, the research community, health systems and long-term care facilities - are invited to come out and share their thoughts about what elements need to be addressed to help those impacted by Alzheimer's disease. These input sessions mark the first step in building a national Alzheimer's strategy for an already large, growing and diverse Alzheimer's community.

The National Alzheimer's Project was created in January 2011 when President Obama signed the National Alzheimer's Project Act into law, after unanimous passage in the both the U.S. House and Senate. To learn more about the input session, submit comments for consideration or the National Alzheimer's Project Act (Public Law 111-375), visit www.alz.org/napa.
