A message from Maria Shriver
As women age, we may begin to notice changes in how our brains function. You may wonder what’s normal and what isn’t. Hormonal shifts happen throughout a woman’s life and knowing how these shifts affect your brain can help you better navigate your own health and learn ways to maintain a healthy brain.
Did you know that women make up two-thirds of Alzheimer’s cases in the United States — and they take on the majority of the responsibility of caring for family members with the disease? That’s why it’s important to speak with a healthcare provider if you notice any changes in memory or cognition in yourself or your loved ones.
Join us as we explore these important topics in our “You & Your Brain” webinar series in partnership with Prevention
and the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. Renowned experts will bring you the latest insights on aging and your brain, navigating a dementia diagnosis, and breakthroughs in brain health.
These informative, inspiring events — held on Tuesdays throughout June — are free to attend.
