Alzheimer’s & other dementia disproportionately affect older Black and Hispanic Americans. Yet too often the clinical trial staff and participants don’t reflect the U.S. population. The #ENACTAct will address these shortcomings. Show your support: p2a.co/xuOMRgm. #ENDALZ

Older Black Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer's or other dementias as older Whites. There's a critical need for Black clinical trial participants. Make a difference by joining @alzassociation TrialMatch today: alz.org/TrialMatch.

$304M was allocated to reduce out-of-pocket costs for hundreds of thousands on @CoveredCA. But with @CAgovernor vetoing #SB944, the money will no longer be used this year and costs will increase. BIG setback to the goal of getting to a universal, affordable health system.

STARTING NOW: @CoveredCA board meets to discuss the next steps for cost-sharing after yesterday's veto of #SB944 by @CAgovernor Newsom. We expect the board to vote to RAISE deductibles and co-pays after the action. Tune in here: board.coveredca.com/meetings…
