The People’s Choice Award is an opportunity for the public to vote on the project they find to be the most innovative and impactful. Secretary Sebelius will present her top picks and announce the People’s Choice Award winner at a ceremony on March 19.

Voting is open to all members of the public, including people affected by Alzheimer’s and caregivers, researchers and grantees, medical and social services providers, as well as their family members, neighbors and friends.
