Women and Alzheimer’s Disease – Webinar
May 11, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
According to a recent Alzheimer’s Association report, nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women and most people who are caring for loved ones at home with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia are women. This virtual presentation will discuss the unique ways that Alzheimer’s and other dementia’s affect women and how women can adopt lifestyle choices to decrease their risk and promote their wellbeing.
