Cure Alzheimers Fund Launches WomenandAlzheimers.org

–News Direct–

In honor of National Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, Cure Alzheimers Fund announces the launch of WomenandAlzheimers.org, a website dedicated to bringing awareness to the impact of Alzheimers on women, providing information on research into understanding sex-based differences and recognizing many of the women who are working toward finding a cure.

There are more than 6 million people in the United Statesand 50 million people throughout the worldcurrently living with an Alzheimers diagnosis, and experts estimate there may be as many as three times more people living with the disease who have not yet been diagnosed. Both men and women develop Alzheimers disease, but two-thirds of all patients are women, and women are frequently the primary caregivers for spouses, partners, parents and others with the disease.

For far too long, science has had a partial view into disease biology because only one sex was included in research studies, said Meg Smith, CEO of Cure Alzheimers Fund. Cure Alzheimers Fund has long required researchers to include consideration of potential sex differences in their projects. Understanding why and how Alzheimers develops differently in men and women, and the factors that increase resilience or risk, will lead to benefits for all Alzheimers patients.

WomenandAlzheimers.org is a resource to learn more about Alzheimers disease pathology, signs and symptoms, and the scientific discoveries that are advancing our understanding of the disease. Users can learn about ways to improve brain health, at any age, and read about the women who are working to find a cure, including researchers, Board members, staff members and advocates.
