Special Policy Academy Offered to National Conference Registrants
YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND A SPECIAL HEALTH POLICY ACADEMY DURING THE CSG 2011 NATIONAL CONFERENCE!
The Council of State Governments invites you to attend Aging and Alzheimer's Disease: Emerging Issues and Policy Solutions, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Bellevue, Wash. The session will immediately precede the CSG National Conference and North American Summit, scheduled for Oct. 19-23.
ABOUT THE ACADEMY
The goals of this session are to understand the impacts on states of the growing numbers of aging Americans coping with Alzheimer's disease today and to learn about effective state policies to assist caregivers and people affected by Alzheimer's and other dementias. You will hear from researchers on the state of science around prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. We will discuss new policy initiatives that apply a public health template to Alzheimer's disease. Successful state policy initiatives will be presented by sponsoring legislators and supporting advocates.
CSG is pleased that our associate members Bayer HealthCare, Pfizer Inc. and the Alzheimer's Association are working with us to put together this Health Policy Academy.
