Funding Alzheimer's and dementia researchNovember 7, 2019
To the editor:
There are more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, including 110,000 here in Indiana.
More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, including 340,000 here in Indiana. Alzheimer’s is a growing public health crisis that threatens to bankrupt America.
In 2019, caring for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias will cost $290 billion — including $195 billion in direct costs to Medicare and Medicaid.
That is why I am joining the Alzheimer’s Association in asking Rep. Larry Bucshon and the rest of Congress to include a $350 million increase for Alzheimer’s and dementia research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the government’s fiscal year 2020 budget.
