Description

Alzheimer’s disease touches many of our lives. We may have a family member who has just been diagnosed or a dear friend who is battling this disease. We may be or know a caregiver. We may worry about it for ourselves or our loved ones.

But did you know women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis? Not only are they more likely than men to be caregivers, but women are also more likely to develop the disease. About 13 million American women are either living with Alzheimer’s or caring for someone who has it. And around 57% of employed caregivers had to go in late, leave early or take time off due to caregiver demand leading to a disruptive workplace.

We invite you to a complimentary lunch focused on the latest Alzheimer’s research with one of the leading scientists in the field. Dr. Maria Carrillo, Chief Science Officer for the Alzheimer’s Association will discuss the great advances being made in understanding Alzheimer’s – including its impact on women, the latest on exciting research for prevention and cure and progress patients and families are making in coping with the disease.
