Bipartisan, Bicameral Legislation Introduced to Help Support Alzheimer’s Patients and Caregivers

U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI.), along with U.S. Representatives Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Linda Sánchez (D-CA), recently introduced legislation to support Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers, as well as reduce the costs of treating Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
