United States Issues New Semipostal Stamp
In 2017, the USPS announced a new 10-year Semipostal stamp program with the first in the series being the 2017 Alzheimer's stamp. The stamp has the same design as the 2008 Alzheimer's Awareness stamp, but with the woman facing right on the new Semipostal, instead of left. President Ronald Reagan declared November National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month in 1983, so it's only fitting the 2017 stamp's First Day of Issue was in November. Proceeds from the sale of the Alzheimer's Semipostal went to the US Department of Health and Human Services to fund Alzheimer's disease research.
