Please read below the letter that was sent to me:
The 2011 Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum proved to be the largest in the event's 23-year history. More than 600 advocates from across the country gathered to learn, engage and inspire others in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. In addition, during the course of the Forum, the Alzheimer's Association announced a new strategic partnership with the Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM).
We encourage you to visit AIM's website http://www.alzimpact.org/?tr=y&auid=8362942 to learn more about this exciting organization that endorses and supports the federal priorities of the Alzheimer's Association. We expect this partnership to further accelerate our efforts to make Alzheimer's a national priority.
