National Alzheimer’s Plan
Posted By alz01 On February 7, 2012 @ 1:04 pm In | No Comments
We at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation applaud the Obama administration’s National Alzheimer’s Plan to increase NIH spending for Alzheimer’s research.
We have seen what the greatest scientific researchers have achieved in areas such as polio, HIV/AIDs and cancers when their scientific discoveries were advanced with the help of government dollars. While this is a good start, Alzheimer’s research is still dramatically underfunded compared to many other diseases that affect far fewer people. The devastating personal and economic impact will affect all of us as the population ages. More government research funding is paramount if we are to reach the goal of eradicating Alzheimer’s disease. In the meantime, however, please join the public/private initiative  for private foundations like us to make up the research spending deficit.
