The National Alzheimer's Project Act, Public Law 111-375 (42 U.S.C. 11225), requires that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) establish the Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care, and Services. The Advisory Council is governed by provisions of Public Law 92-463 (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2), which sets forth standards for the formation and use of advisory committees.
The Secretary of HHS has determined that establishment of the Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care, and Services is desirable to provide advice and consultation to the Secretary on how to prevent or reduce the burden of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias on people with the disease and their caregivers. The Secretary signed the charter establishing the Advisory Council on May 23, 2011. HHS is soliciting nominations for non-Federal members of the Advisory Council. Nominations should include the nominee's contact information (current mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number) and a current curriculum vitae or resume.
