Martina Anderson MEP joins European Alzheimer's Alliance
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.”
