Women

  • It's time for more women to take action to demand a cure.

  • Of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's, 3.4 million are women.

  • 10.5 million women care for someone with Alzheimer's and 70 percent of all unpaid caregivers are women.

     

  • Alzheimer's is the greatest health crisis of the 21st century and women are on the front lines of this epidemic.
