Event with Rep. Israel

LIAF recently hosted a bipartisan, intergovernmental hearing on Alzheimer's disease, initiated by Congressman Steve Israel, to help drive support and additional funding for a collaborative consortium to make New York the Alzheimer's research hub for a search for a cure to this devastating disease. Hope and positivity permeated the meeting, with commitments from all to make this initiative a reality! Joining Steve were Sen. Jack Martins and Assemblyman Chuck Lavine. Other speakers included Chuck Fuschillo, head of AFA, and Fred Jenny, LIAF's executive director, with passionate presentations by LIAF's very own Alzheimer's advocates - Alan Vann and Jennifer Paterson.
