Women & Alzheimer’s:

The Empowerment Forum

This event brings together dynamic women who share personal and professional knowledge about Alzheimer’s, a disease which disproportionately affects women. A panel of family caregivers, dementia care professionals, and medical experts will have an intimate, empowering conversation where they will share their personal stories, offer perspectives on the professional journey in Alzheimer’s care and research, discuss the challenges women face relating to Alzheimer’s and caregiving, and steps to help address these challenges. A Q&A session with the audience will be part of the program. 

**Doors open at 9:00 AM for registration, continental breakfast, exhibits, and memory screening. Program begins promptly at 10:00 AM.**
