CDA Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee
The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee was established within the California Health and Human Services Agency in 1988 to provide ongoing advice and assistance on program needs and priorities of persons impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia disorders. The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee members represent consumers, family members, providers and advocates. Members of the Committee serve on a volunteer basis without compensation. In 2011, the California Health and Human Services Agency, in partnership with external stakeholders, released the California State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease, which provides a set of goals, recommendations and strategies to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health and to improve care and support for all who are affected.
The Committee has finalized two fact sheets on dementia and mental health: the Provider Guidance and the Consumer Guidance fact sheets. Please feel free to distribute these fact sheets.
All meetings of the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee are planned to be from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at:
California Health & Human Services
1215 O Street
Sacramento, California 95814
