The 90-minute session will focus on how Alzheimer’s affects women, in particular
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 13 million women in America either live with or care for someone who has Alzheimer’s. So, the organization’s Arizona group is taking 90 minutes to focus on the impact of this rampant form of dementia on women, in specific. The association says women make up more than 60 percent of caregivers, and a significant portion have had to stop working to either become caregivers or because caregiving grew too burdensome.
“Women Conquer ALZ” will feature takeaways from recent scientific research, as well as stories of hope, and education and other resources.
The live virtual event will start at 2 p.m. Arizona time on Wednesday, Dec. 14. It will run until 3:30 p.m. Click here to register.
