why did we start
Women’s Brain Health Initiative?

It was frightening to learn that women suffer from depression, stroke and dementia twice as much as men and an astounding 70% of new Alzheimer’s patients will be women. Yet research still focuses on men. We want to correct this research bias.

The Women’s Brain Health Initiative creates education programs and funds research to combat brain aging diseases that affect women.
