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 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.**
