MANATEE COUNTY, Fla., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Roskamp Institute's Associate Clinic Director and Neuropsychologist Cheryl Luis, Ph.D., ABPP-CN was recently nominated and appointed chairperson to the Department of Elder Affairs' (DOEA) Alzheimer's Disease Initiative Advisory Committee (ADIAC).

"The advisory committee is very fortunate to have someone like Dr. Luis as the chairperson," said Darrick McGhee, director of legislative affairs for the DOEA, who worked with Dr. Luis during her tenure as the chair of the ADIAC Legislative Subcommittee. "She is very passionate about Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, and I believe she will ensure that the committee brings forth the appropriate recommendations for the patients and caregivers of our state."

"I am honored to have been nominated and appointed as the chairperson," said Dr. Luis, who was nominated by an ADIAC member and subsequently appointed based on majority vote. "I am excited to continue to work with the advisory committee and the Department of Elder Affairs to reduce the burden of Alzheimer's disease to Florida residents affected by the illness."

Dr. Luis was first appointed to the advisory committee of the Alzheimer's Disease Initiative (ADI) within the DOEA in 2006 by former Governor Jeb Bush. The ADI was created in 1985 by Florida Legislators to meet the needs of individuals and families with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. The ADIAC meets quarterly and Alzheimer's disease specialists and health care providers from around the state regularly attend and actively participate. The advisory committee represents professionals, researchers, clinicians, social and allied health workers, Alzheimer's organizations, daycare and nursing home personal and caregivers, who are all vested in the needs of Alzheimer's patients.
