According to the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's takes a disproportionate toll on women.

The goal of this webinar is to expand knowledge among nurses and healthcare professionals about the prevalence and effects of Alzheimer's disease on the lives of women in the US.

Upon completion, participants will be able to do the following:  
1.  Describe three consequences of Alzheimer's disease for women in the US
