As part of an esteemed group of panelists, including members of Congress and mobile and senior care executives, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s co-founder and Chairman George Vradenburg will speak about how technology and mobile applications can spur meaningful social interaction and connectivity for aging Americans, especially those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. 

Adding to its cadre of influential and highly-regarded Alzheimer’s leaders, today UsAgainstAlzheimer’s (UsA2) announced that Karen Segal, who founded the North Shore Medical Research Junior Board for Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago in 1995, will be joining its board of directors.

WASHINGTON, DC, May 13, 2016—WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s – an UsAgainstAlzheimer’s network and a global nonprofit organization that advocates for women – today announced the launch of its bold We Won’t Wait campaign to bring to light the economic injustice that women face when they experience Alzheimer’s either as the patient or the caregiver. The campaign is the first-ever effort to define Alzheimer’s as both an economic as well as a health-related injustice against women, and it is the organization’s next phase in its successful work over the last four years fighting for a cure through a woman’s lens.
