President And Founding CEO Eric J. Hall Departs Alzheimer's Foundation Of America While Continuing To Advocate For Optimal Care And Services













GLEN COVE, N.Y., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After more than a decade of leadership, Eric J. Hall announced today that he has stepped down as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA), a nonprofit organization headquartered in New York City.  With a passion for improving the quality of care for people, Hall will continue to serve as an advocate for research, optimal care and services and federal and state legislation that support Alzheimer's disease as well as other key causes.

Hall spearheaded the establishment and development of the AFA to improve the quality of care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and their families. As part of this mission, he initiated major national initiatives related to early detection, training of healthcare professionals, standards for dementia care settings and a national publication. Under his vision and leadership, AFA united more than 1,600 member organizations and associate member organizations in the United States making it a formidable voice for the Alzheimer's cause.

In 2011, Hall was appointed to sit on the National Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care and Services as established by the Alzheimer's Project Act and tasked with providing the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services with input into government efforts to prevent and treat the disease as well as creating a national strategy for defeating Alzheimer's Disease.

While representing the AFA, Hall has become an active and persuasive voice with key leaders in the White House, Congress, state legislators and other government officials discussing the importance of early detection of Alzheimer's disease, and the vital role of family and professional caregivers in the healthcare continuum. These efforts have resulted in significant legislation, including provisions in the new healthcare reform law that call for detection of cognitive impairment in the Medicare annual wellness physical.
