“Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis.
That’s why we must be at the heart of the solution.”
There are 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, a disease that can begin to develop 20-30 years before symptoms occur.
There are 11.2 million Americans providing unpaid care to someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. Two-thirds of them are women.
African Americans are twice as likely as whites to develop Alzheimer's; Latinos 1.5 times.
One-third of Alzheimer's cases may be preventable by addressing lifestyle factors. It's never too early to start.
