                Proclamation 8200 of October 31, 2007

                
National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, 
                2007

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month is an 
                opportunity to honor and support those living with 
                Alzheimer's disease. During this month, we also seek to 
                express our gratitude to the family members and 
                caretakers who love and comfort those afflicted, and we 
                renew our commitment to finding a cure to this 
                devastating disease.

                The greatest risk factor for Alzheimer's disease is 
                age. Scientists are studying how other factors such as 
                family history, nutrition, environment, and education, 
                also affect an individual's risk for Alzheimer's 
                disease. The National Institutes of Health and the 
                Department of Veterans Affairs continue to conduct 
                research to better prevent, detect, and treat 
                Alzheimer's disease and provide information and support 
                to caretakers and families.

                During National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, we 
                recognize the millions of Americans affected by this 
                tragic disease and honor those who have lost their 
                lives to Alzheimer's. Americans are grateful for the 
                resolve and dedication of medical professionals, 
                scientific researchers, family members, and caregivers 
                who give their time and talents and help provide hope 
                to many.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 2007 as National 
                Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. I call upon the 
                people of the United States to observe this month with 
                appropriate programs and activities.

                United States of America the two hundred and thirty-
                second.
