Thomson, GA - Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today announced that he will host a free workshop, entitled "Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's Disease."  Presented in partnership with the East Central Georgia/Augusta Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, the event will take place from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm on Thursday, July 9th in the auditorium of the Thomson-McDuffie Administration Building, located at 210 Railroad Street.  

"Every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's Disease," said Congressman Hice.  "That's why it is so important to know the signs of this debilitating disease.  I invite everyone in McDuffie County and the surrounding areas to come out on July 9th and get the facts about Alzheimer's.  At this workshop, you'll gain a greater understanding of age-related memory loss and dementia as well as what to do if you or someone you love shows the signs of this deadly disease."

To register for the workshop, contact Beth Williams, Program Director for the Alzheimer's Association's Augusta Region, at 706-860-5233 or by Tuesday, July 7th. The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
