By 2050 nearly 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer’s, yet there is no national plan to deal with this looming crisis. The National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) would establish an inter-agency advisory council to address the government’s efforts on Alzheimer’s research, care, institutional services, and home- and community-based programs.
Many other countries have developed or are developing plans, the United States is lagging behind these nations: Australia, South Korea, Norway, France, England, Scotland, India, Malta, Cyprus, and Wales.

The Northern Michigan Region of the Alzheimer’s Association is pleased and honored to announce our new Regional Council member, Eric Winkelman. Eric has been a resident of Leelanau County since 1990. He has been involved with numerous activities to preserve the beauty of Leelanau County from development.
Eric’s life has been personally touched by the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease, beginning with the loss of his father in 1979 and his mother in 2003, who both passed away due to complications of the disease. More recently, Eric lost his 64 year old step-brother, also to Alzheimer’s Disease.
Eric’s late father’s charitable Southeast Michigan foundation has been very supportive, of the Alzheimer’s Association mission “to eliminate Alzheimer's Disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected…” and to one day find a cure.
He and his wife Barbara, have three sons, and one granddaughter, and spend the vast majority of their time in Glen Arbor, Michigan.
