House subcommittee proposes $350 million Alzheimer’s research funding increase

7/6/2016 -- Today, the House Labor-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee proposed a $350 million increase for Alzheimer’s research at the NIH. This bipartisan effort was led by Alzheimer’s champion Chairman Tom Cole (R-Okla.) and comes just weeks after the Senate Appropriations Committee proposed a historic $400 million increase. The full House Appropriations Committee may take action on the House Appropriations bill as early as next week.

“On behalf of the millions of Americans impacted by this fatal disease, I thank Chairman Cole and other members of the subcommittee for their commitment to end the Alzheimer’s epidemic,” said Harry Johns, Alzheimer’s Association president and CEO. “Today, Alzheimer’s disease is the only leading cause of death without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression. Only research will change this.”
