In the U.S. alone, an estimated 13 million women are either living with Alzheimer’s or caring for someone who has it. More than 60% of Alzheimer’s caregivers are women and a third of those are daughters. Alzheimer’s is a women’s issue.  This special Women’s Luncheon is presented in partnership with the TN Dept. of Health–Office of Minority Health and the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center.
