Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas Chapter

The Alzheimer’s Association is hosting a free education program on February 1, 2017, in Longview, to share information about the burden of Alzheimer’s disease among women.  The goal of the event is to provide training and materials to participants who can inform others about Alzheimer’s disease in women. The workshop is at the Institute for Healthy Living from 11:30-1:00 and includes lunch.

Alzheimer’s disease destroys the brain, killing nerve cells and tissue until all function is affected.  It is the sixth leading cause in the U.S. with over five million Americans living with the disease.

Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis.  Two out of three people with Alzheimer’s disease are women, and women make up nearly 70 percent of caregivers.  Women are affected nearly twice as much as men.

Join us and others at the Your Brain Matters program in Longview at the Good Shepherd Institute for Healthy Living on February 1, to learn more about the burden of Alzheimer’s disease on women.  You will receive lunch, be informed on to present the education message, and receive materials to share with your family, friends, and neighbors.  For more information, contact Carolyn Ramirez (903-234-8877), and to register for the program, call 1-800-272-3900 or online at www.alz.org/greaterdallas.
