Caroline Smith named Alzheimer’s Ambassador for 14th District
Caroline Smith, RN of Rome has recently been appointed an Alzheimer’s Ambassador for the National Alzheimer’s Association. Smith was selected for this honor due to her efforts on behalf of families affected by Alzheimer’s, including her recent journey to the National Alzheimer’s Conference in Washington, D.C. in May 2011. There, more than 600 national advocates who hailed from all 50 states met with congressional and senate leaders including Johnny Isakson.
The advocates encouraged leaders to support the national HOPE Act and Breakthrough Act. The HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act will improve diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and increase access to information, care and support for newly diagnosed individuals and their families - providing essential support for those facing this devastating, debilitating disease. The Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act of 2011 (H.R. 1897) would advance breakthrough treatments for people living with Alzheimer’s by requiring a federal commitment to Alzheimer’s disease research. Both pieces of legislation work to impact the cure for the nation’s sixth leading cause of death.
As a National Ambassador, Smith will participate in local, state and national efforts to increase awareness and promote efforts for a cure on behalf of the 200,000 Georgians living with Alzheimer’s and as a personal testament to its effects having lost her father to the disease in 2010.
Smith is an RN at Redmond Regional Medical Center and a Clinical Adjunct Instructor with Georgia Northwestern Technical College. She is also a member of the Coosa Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s Committee and available to the community via email at Asmith4554@bellsouth.net.
