“Women are at the epicenter of brain-aging diseases. 70% of Alzheimer’s sufferers are women. Women are twice as likely as men to succumb to dementia and depression and two-and-a-half times more likely to be providing care for someone else with a brain-aging disorder. Even correcting for age, women seem to be at higher risk. I used my brain to start the Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI) to create education programs and fund research to combat brain-aging diseases that affect women.”
