“Given the enormous impact Alzheimer’s disease has on women and families in this country, we partnered with Maria Shriver to escalate the national conversation about Alzheimer’s. Maria’s personal experience with Alzheimer’s is relatable to the American public and will help bring the disease to the forefront,” said Angela Geiger, Chief Strategy Officer of the Alzheimer’s Association.
“With a new person developing Alzheimer’s every 70 seconds and women impacted disproportionately as both people with the disease and caregivers, the Alzheimer’s Association sees this as an opportunity to illustrate further the devastating path this disease will continue on without adequate funding for care and research,” Geiger said.
