On Monday, August 16, two of our policy victories were signed into law by Governor JB Pritzker! Special thanks to the partnership with our very own Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton and bill sponsors for making these successes possible.
Thanks to leaders State Senator Ram Villivalam and Representative Kathleen Willis, Senate Bill 677 was signed into law as the first bill in the nation to ensure doctors and other healthcare provides serving adults receive ongoing dementia training.
Thanks to sponsors Senator Melinda Bush and State Representative Natalie Manley, House Bill 848 was signed into law to extend the scratch-off lottery ticket to continue raising funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, education and awareness in Illinois. Together, we are making Illinois a dementia capable state!
