A panel that’s trying to keep dementia from bankrupting the country is seeking a member who is already starting to suffer from Alzheimer’s or a related condition.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), has posted a “nominees wanted” notice in the Federal Register on behalf of HHS and the Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care and Services.
Nominees are due June 14. The successful nominee will serve a two-year term as a “special government employee.”
The open position on the advisory council is for a “new, non-federal” individual who already has a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a similar form of dementia.
