Gail Sonnesso Selected by the Alzheimer’s Association to be an Alzheimer Ambassador!

Gail Sonnesso, Executive Director and Founder of GEM Adult Day Services, Inc., has been selected by the Alzheimer’s Association to be an Alzheimer Ambassador.

The Alzheimer Ambassador Program is designed to enhance the Alzheimer’s Association’s federal government relations efforts through personal contact with targeted members of Congress by constituents capable of building relationships with decision-makers and their staff and holding them accountable to their commitments to fighting Alzheimer’s.  Ambassadors are grassroots volunteers selected to serve as the main point of in-district contact for a targeted member of Congress.

Ambassadors play a critical role in helping the Alzheimer’s Association meet its federal legislative goals.

They work directly with National and chapter staff to implement federal advocacy activities at the community level.

This experience is deeply rewarding and educational. Contributing skills and energy to this important local task will have national implications as we work together to build a world without Alzheimer’s.” (The ALZ Association’s website 12 27 13 www.alz.org)
