Alzheimer’s Task Force Gets to Work to Update Statewide Plan

(MISSOURINET) –  Every ten years or so, Missouri updates its plan to help Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers – and that time has come. A statewide task force is considering things like access to care, support and treatment, quality of care, as well as early detection and diagnosis. Missouri Office of Workforce Development Director Mardy Leathers is a member of the task force.

The group plans to hold forums across the state through the end of the year to ask the public for suggestions. It is responsible for making recommendations to the governor and legislature by January.
