The Alliance was formed in direct response to a 2008 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report that concluded that Amer- ica's eldercare workforce is dan- gerously understaffed and unpre- pared to care for the rapidly grow- ing number of older adults in the U.S. The Alliance is a project of the Tides Center and the Tides Advo- cacy Fund and will be directed by Alice H. Hedt, formerlythe Exec- utive Director of the National Cit- izens Coalition for Nursing Home Reform (NCCNHR). The Alliance will be partnering with older adults and their family members as well as national organizations to work with the Administration and Congress to effect changes that improve health- care and care for America's elders. The Atlantic Philanthropies and the John A. Hartford Foundation pro- vided funds for the development of the Alliance.

Bus Boycott and Civil rights Movement Dr. Christopher Lehman, St. Cloud State University associ- ate professor and Director of the African American Studies minor, will present The Bus Boycott and the Civil Rights Movement at the Stearns History Museum at 9 a.m. March 11. Lehman, the author of three books and numerous articles that have appeared in such pub- lications as The Journal of Black Studies, will share his knowl- edge of the Montgomery Bus Boy- cott that began in December 1955. Social change in America gained momentum during this time especially in the South. The boy- cott's roots began when one per- son, Rosa Parks, refused to give up her bus seat for a white man. She later stated, "We were all tired of being mistreated for no other rea- son than because we were black." Communityleaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr. decided the time was ripe for social change. Others in Montgomery joined the effort from black organizations, church groups, and supportive white citi- zens. Lehman will further address how the bus boycott ushered in the American Civil Rights Movement during the next decade.Please join us at the Stearns History Museum for this informative and thought- provoking presentation. There is no charge for Stearns HistoryMuseum members; admis- sion for non-members is $5. For information about Breakfast Club or the Museum, please call (320) 253-8424.

If so, you may be eligible for a new study at the University of Minnesota Researchers at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing are looking for volunteers for their new study, "Comprehensive Support for Alzheimer's Disease Caregivers." The goal of this study is to determine if flexible and comprehensive counseling and support can help adult children care for a parent's Alzheimer's disease or similar memory disorder. Participating adult children will be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to receive the comprehensive counseling support program or usual care. All participants will take part in a series of in-depth interviews with Dr. Gaugler. All participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences about caring for their parents.
