Got this notice from our local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.
what: Younger-Onset Alzheimer's Disease Hearing in Chicago, IL
when: Wednesday, July 29, 2009
On July 29, a hearing will be held in Chicago to examine the possibility of providing access to Social Security benefits to younger people with Alzheimer’s disease.
We are looking for people with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease (diagnosed under age 65) and/or family members to attend.
This is an all-day event and an exciting chance to be part of a historic hearing.
Attendees will not have a speaking role at the hearing but will have an opportunity to submit written testimony prior to the hearing. The role of the attendees is to be present to show support for providing access to Social Security benefits to younger people with Alzheimer’s.
