About the Alzheimer’s Women’s Initiative
Inspired and influenced by “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Takes on Alzheimer’s,” a group of key women leaders and visionaries came together to use their amazing brains to help wipe out Alzheimer’s disease. With women at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis, these women were charged, inspired, and moved to form the Alzheimer’s Women Initiative (AWI), a volunteer-driven community group, which aims to educate families, associates and neighbors on the economic and human impact of Alzheimer’s, honor those who selflessly provide care for people affected by Alzheimer’s, expand the resources available to the local families who are living with Alzheimer’s each and every day, and advocate for more federal research dollars to find a way to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s disease.
