(The Daily Dish) Jeremy Cunningham, Public Policy Director with the Alzheimer’s Association, Utah Chapter joined Nicea and Deena on The Daily Dish today to talk about how they’re helping Utah to lead the way in the fight for research!
Jeremy and Representative John Curtis recently took a trip to Washington Curtis to discuss with others what is and what can be done with research.
Many may not realize but Utah is leading the way in the fight for research and part of that is due to Jeremy and his team and the work they have done. They have been working on getting many things passed in congress, such as H.R.3085 or the ENACT Act.
