Alzheimer's Association Honors Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue With Humanitarian Award
Date:3/8/2010

's willingness to listen and to provide a platform for these individuals to share. During the public hearing on this issue, Commissioner Astrue and his colleagues heard from those living with Alzheimer's and Alzheimer researchers about the terminal nature of the disease, the disabilities that often prohibit work in even the earliest stages of the disease, and the lack of effective treatments that modify or halt disease progression. Another 600 advocates submitted written testimony about their experience trying to obtain disability benefits.  

Commissioner Astrue will receive his Humanitarian Award during the Alzheimer's Association's 22nd Annual Advocacy Forum, the Alzheimer's Association's premier advocacy event that brings together advocates from across the country in three momentous days of action in the fight against Alzheimer's.

Past recipients of the Alzheimer's Association's Humanitarian Award include: President Ronald Reagan, Senators Arlen Specter, Tom Harkin, Mark Hatfield, Barbara Mikulski, Jay Rockefeller, Charles Grassley and Blanche Lincoln, Representatives Steny Hoyer and Edward Markey and Josefina Carbonell, Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Aging.
