Event Details

Women’s brains are more vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease and other problems associated with cognitive function. Women are twice as likely as men to have Alzheimer’s and dementia and twice as likely to care for a loved one with the disease.

Yet, until now, there has been virtually no concerted drive to fund research on women’s brain health around the world and no global cooperation among women leaders.

Women’s Brain Health Initiative Canada, WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s USA, Alzheimer’s Research UK, and 21st Century BrainTrust® have formed the Global Alliance on Women’s Brain Health to raise awareness of women’s brain health challenges and significantly expand funding for sex-based brain health research and education, that benefits both men and women.
