05 Feb: Van Drew Measure Would Establish New Jersey Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew which would establish the New Jersey Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission has been unanimously approved by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

“According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are roughly 5.3 million Americans who are currently living with the disease. As the baby boomer generation continues to age, that number will only increase,” said Senator Van Drew, D-Cape May and Atlantic. “When it comes to diseases like Alzheimer’s, knowledge and up-to-date information are key. Through this Commission, we would be better able to examine the information currently available about Alzheimer’s, so we can ensure that affected New Jerseyans receive the best possible care.”
