Alzheimer’s Association to have open discussion of Alzheimer’s disease related to women
The Alzheimer’s Association and the Women’s Information Network have partnered to offer a night of education and discussion regarding the issue of Alzheimer’s disease and women. Almost two-thirds of American seniors living with Alzheimer’s are women. Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis.
The event will be held at the Rome Cinemas on Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. Rebekah Davis, Alzheimer’s Association Regional Program Director, will present Know the Ten Signs and will discuss the impact of Alzheimer’s on women. Afterward there will be a showing of Still Alice, an awardwinning film based on the novel Still Alice by Lisa Genova. The film tells the story of a linguistics professor, portrayed by Julianne Moore, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Light refreshments will be provided by Riverwood Senior Living.
