Wes Ashford (M.D.,Ph.D.) gave testimony to the U.S. Congress yesterday in Washington. The topic he was asked to speak to was Alzheimer's Disease, in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. He advocated that Congress get actively involved in supporting screening for dementia, utilizing either the faster/more accurate computerized methods or the less desirable paper practices. He was scheduled to meet with some of Hillary Clinton's staff (among others). We'll pass on how it went and some details later today.
