My Brain Matters: Women and Alzheimer's Disease

Women are the epicenter of Alzheimer’s disease – making up the majority of both people living with the disease and caregivers. Hear the latest in Alzheimer's research, what the Alzheimer's Association is doing to combat this disease, and how to get involved.

The breakfast program features new data on women and Alzheimer's disease, as well as updates on public policy, research, supportive services and how to become involved. County Executive Laura Neuman, Anne Arundel County will give the welcome greeting to the program and our guest speaker, Ann Morrison, PhD, RN, CLNC, from the Copper Ridge Institute, will discuss research efforts underway to develop more effective treatments.

There are over 97,000 Maryland residents with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, and it is estimated that more than 6,000 reside in Anne Arundel County. Nationally, nearly 13 million women are either living with or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease. This devastating disease places an unbalanced burden on women at work and at home, forcing them to make unwanted choices about their careers, relationships and other life decisions. We need the power of each woman’s brain to help solve this problem — and to take action in the fight.
