Martina Anderson MEP joins European Alzheimer's Alliance

16 April, 2013 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MEP Martina has joined the European Alzheimer’s Alliance at the EU Parliament.

Martina Anderson said:

“I was pleased to accept the invitation to join the Alzheimer’s Alliance at the European Parliament. As someone with first-hand knowledge of what it is like to care for a family member – my mother-who is a sufferer of this debilitating condition I appreciate the work of the Alliance in bringing a focus to bear on its widespread occurrence.

“As a member of  the Committee dealing with Public Health at the EU Parliament I will take every opportunity to highlight the needs of those suffering  from Alzheimer’s and the predicament that those caring for them  find themselves in. I believe that much more public funds needs to be invested in research into conditions such as Alzheimer’s and I will be calling on the EU to do more to help in the search for appropriate treatment and cure.”
