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

This webinar will discuss these important details of this devastating disease and how healthcare professionals can help change this trajectory.
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:
