The Advisory Council consists of at least 22 members and meets quarterly to discuss the efficacy of government programs targeting the needs of individuals and caregivers coping with the consequences of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD). The Advisory Council provided comments on the first National Plan for ADRD which was developed by HHS. The Advisory Council reviewed and commented on the draft National Plan, and made recommendations for priority actions. On an annual basis, the Advisory Council evaluates the implementation of the recommendations through an updated National Plan.
Members from outside of the Federal Government include two patient advocates, two caregivers, two health care providers, two representatives of state health departments, two researchers, and two voluntary health association representatives.
