WOMEN #ENDALZ celebrates the power and influence of women. By using our collective voices, we can create awareness of the impact Alzheimer’s on our health, our families and our nation. Women are disproportionally affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Almost two-thirds of Americans with the disease are women and 65 percent of caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s are women.
The Risk is Real for Women
A woman’s estimated lifetime risk of developing Alzheimer’s at age 65 is 1 in 6. As real a concern as breast cancer is to women’s health, women in their 60s are about twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s as they are to develop breast cancer. Not only are women more likely to have Alzheimer’s, they are also more likely to be caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
The WOMEN #ENDALZ Luncheon
The WOMEN #ENDALZ Luncheon is an event driven by influential women who bring community leaders together to support our mission: to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
Ignite Hope, Inspire Change and Make an Impact
Join us at the Alzheimer's Association WOMEN #ENDALZ Luncheon on Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach. We will honor Linda Sadeghi, of The LAB, with the Alzheimer's Association Community Epicenter Award.
