The Pennsylvania Public Policy Coalition of the Alzheimer’s Association

In 2015 the Pennsylvania Public Policy Coalition of the Alzheimer’s Association sought to reengage with the Pennsylvania’s elected leadership in Harrisburg, to reeducate members of the General Assembly and key Administrative Agency leaders about the important work underway to address the growing Alzheimer’s epidemic across the Commonwealth.

The Caliguiri Group worked with the Coalition leadership and staff to put together an effective and comprehensive Legislative Action Day in Harrisburg in order to leverage their Chapter teams and volunteers to effectively communicate about the challenges facing Alzheimers patients and their caregivers. This work included developing a list of targeted bipartisan legislative leaders, securing all necessary meetings and firmly reestablishing the dormant Alzheimer’s Caucus. We also provided all of the strategic communications, logistical planning and writing services necessary to implement a full Capitol Rotunda steps press conference featuring Alzheimer’s caregivers, Coalition leaders, volunteers and legislative leaders to highlight the importance of Alzheimer’s issues across the Commonwealth.
