Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day
The Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day campaign was started to increase recognition of the specific heart valve disease risks and symptoms, improve detection and treatment, and ultimately save lives. Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day takes place every February 22 during American Heart Month.
Alzheimer’s Disease Policy Task Force
The Alzheimer’s Disease Policy Task Force is an ad hoc coalition of patient, family caregiver, and professional organizations, working collectively to organize and educate the Alzheimer’s disease community and decisionmakers on the Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) Accelerated Approval pathway, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) coverage determination processes for amyloid-targeted monoclonal antibody therapies for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
The Talk NERDY (Nurturing Engagement in Research and Development with You) program empowers older adults, their family caregivers, clinicians, and health researchers to learn about patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and how we can all work together to develop – and implement – research that answers the questions that matter most to patients.
