OUR STORY

 

Many disorders associated with brain aging inexplicably affect women, and there has been a lack of research to understand why. Taking sex (biological factors) and gender (social influences) into account is necessary for equality in health and precision medicine.

Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI)  is a Canadian and U.S. charitable foundation established in 2012 and is solely dedicated to protecting the brain health of women.

WBHI helps protect women’s brain health by focusing its resources on research to combat brain-aging disorders that disproportionately affect women, and by creating compelling preventative health programs, grounded in science, so there is a greater understanding of the best ways to prolong our cognitive vitality.

LET THE TRUTH BE TOLD – MISDIAGNOSIS & DOCTOR BIAS

Could your diagnosis be wrong? Doctors are human and sometimes make mistakes. Perhaps a cluster of symptoms suggests a few different diagnoses, and a lack of time or an incomplete set of diagnostic criteria may result in a patient receiving a diagnosis that either does not seem appropriate, turns out…

DO BRAIN GAMES KEEP YOUR MIND SHARP AS YOU AGE?

Challenging your brain with games and puzzles (e.g. crosswords, Sudoku, chess, and computer brain-training games) is commonly believed to help maintain or improve brain health.
