Recording: Featured Session: Maria Shriver, Alexandra Socha and Farida Sohrabji with Ashley C. Ford, Mar 8, 2019

Hundreds of thousands of women are losing their minds to Alzheimer's each year, and no one knows why. Of the minds that develop Alzheimer’s, 2/3rds of them belong to women. Maria Shriver hosts a candid conversation about women’s brain health and the mind-blowing implications for us all. Joining her are Dr. Farida Sohrabji, founder and director of the Women’s Health in Neuroscience Program at the Texas A&M College of Medicine and advocate for the inclusion of gender/sex differences in biomedical research, and actress Alexandra Socha, an Advocate with the Alzheimer's Association after her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at age 50. Women are at the center of this global health crisis, but they may also hold the key to unlocking a cure for everyone. If you know a woman or you are woman join us for an eye-opening conversation about what we all must do now to save those we love.
