Why We Fund Women Based Research

With 2/3 cases of Alzheimer’s disease diagnosed in women, the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM) at Cleveland Clinic recognizes that women are at the epicenter of this global epidemic. We fund women-based research at leading institutions around the country to understand why Alzheimer’s disproportionately impacts women.


Why we help lead the Alzheimer’s disease prevention movement

With the latest research indicating that up to 40% of Alzheimer’s disease might be preventable through lifestyle modifications, WAM at Cleveland Clinic is pioneering the science behind reducing the risks for developing this mind- blowing disease.


Why we educate women and health care providers about Alzheimer’s disease

WAM at Cleveland Clinic believes it is critical to provide women facts about Alzheimer’s disease and the risk factors that put women at increased risk. We develop innovative programs and content to help raise awareness of this disease as a women’s issue.


Why we advocate for changes in health policies that affect women and Alzheimer’s

Our nation has historically underfunded women’s health research. WAM at Cleveland Clinic is working with policymakers, health care leaders, and private and public activists to bridge the gap in our scientific knowledge so we can answer the question of why women are at increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease.
