About UsAgainstAlzheimer’s

The number-one goal of UsAgainstAlzheimer's (UsA2), an innovative 501(c)3 organization, is to stop Alzheimer’s disease(AD). Driven by the suffering of millions of families, UsA2 (and its partner 501(c)4 organization, UsA2 Action) is pressing for greater urgency from government, industry and the scientific community in the quest for an Alzheimer's cure—accomplishing this through effective leadership, collaborative advocacy and strategic investments. Our objectives are to:

● Increase public and private resources for Alzheimer’sresearch

● Increase the speed, efficiency, and diversity of clinical trialsfor Alzheimer’s disease

● Increase attention to brain health to delay onset of Alzheimer's and increase early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer's

● Include insights and preferences of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and their care partners in drug development, regulatory and Medicare decisions

● Help advance national care goals and policies in support of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and their care partners

● Mobilize Americans to demand an effective, accessible treatment

● Reduce AD’s disparate impact on women & minorities

We believe that accomplishing these objectives will require bringingall of us to the fight. As a result, keys to our work are advocatingconvening and collaborating—with those living with the disease, government, other advocacy groups, industry, researchers, and thought leaders. 

Founded in 2010, UsA2 is making a transition from being an organization led primarily by the co-founders to one that is more sustainable and program-focused.
