NANUET, N.Y. -- The Alzheimer’s Association is offering an outlet for people who want to fight the progressive brain disease on the grassroots level.

Debbie Warburton, director of government relations for the organization’s Hudson Valley Chapter, will lead an advocacy training session from 2-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17.

It will be held at Meals on Wheels’ offices,121 West Nyack Road,  Nanuet.

Warburton will talk about public policy on Alzheimer’s and explore state and federal legislation that the association supports.

She will also give advocacy trainees strategies for effectively reaching out to lawmakers.

Other training sessions will be posted on the Hudson Valley Chapter’s website and Facebook page.

District Director Patricia Keegan of Rep. Nita Lowey’s office will speak Wednesday about ways to successfully engage with elected representatives.

"I'm very excited to be doing this training,” Warburton said. “The best part of my job is letting people know there's something positive they can do in the fight against Alzheimer's. When people tell their legislators what it's like to deal with the disease on a daily basis, it's very empowering for them. I like being a part of that."

Prior to joining the Hudson Valley Chapter this year, Warburton spent nearly five years at the Greater New Jersey Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, where she was coordinator of public policy, advocacy and volunteers.

She has a master’s degree in social work and a certificate in aging studies from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Warburton has also worked for the New York City Long Term Care Ombudsman Program and in a variety of health care settings.
