Washington, D.C – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is a co-lead on the Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Act, which was introduced yesterday. This bipartisan legislation updates the Older Americans Act to provide protections for those under age 60 who are diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

“The Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Act is an important piece of legislation that amends the Older Americans Act to include services for a fast growing population – younger individuals diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This heartbreaking disease that touches so many families deserves equal recognition and protection under the law, and I’m proud to be a co-lead of this long-overdue, bipartisan bill and to stand up for the Alzheimer’s community.”
