The Kensington’s own Gillian Asphar, Memory Care Activities Assistant and Concierge, recently attended the Alzheimer’s Association AIM Advocacy Forum in Washington DC from June 17- June 19, 2018!
This is the nation’s premier Alzheimer’s disease advocacy event. Advocates from across the country met in Washington, D.C. for an inspiring three-day event filled with networking, training and education. The three days culminated with Hill Day on June 19 as they advocated with elected officials to advance policies and improve the lives of all individuals affected by dementia.
From the team at AIM (Alzheimer’s Impact Movement):
“Due in large part to our advocates and their annual presence in Washington, D.C., we’ve seen great increases in federal Alzheimer’s research funding at the National Institutes of Health and critical advances made in care and support.”
We at The Kensington are so very proud of Gillian and her passion for making a difference by advocating for Alzheimer’s research, funding and policies.
