Why Brain Health Is So Important For Women - Susan Spencer, Woman's Day


Research is showing us how we can protect our brain health and reduce our risk of Alzheimer’s later in life—through exercise, healthy eating, getting enough sleep, managing medical risks (like high blood pressure), and staying mentally and socially engaged.

Women particularly are hit hard by Alzheimer’s, as two-thirds of those with the disease and two-thirds of those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s. If we can help women “Be Brain Powerful,” we change the face of the disease.

Susan Spencer, editor-in-chief of Woman’s Day magazine, joined host Meryl Comer to talk about brain health: what we can do to preserve it and why women especially should take note. Susan and Woman’s Day are partners in our Be Brain Powerful™ campaign to help women (and men) learn how to protect their brain health.
