The Women's Alzheimer's Movement - WAM Prevention Center First Anniversary

Today marks the first anniversary of our Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement Prevention Center. This first-of-its-kind center offers women ages 30 – 60 with a known family history of Alzheimer’s disease personalized risk reduction strategies based on their medical history and lifestyle habits. Since opening our doors we have seen more than 118 women from 40 states across the country, enrolled 29 women into a research registry, and have received Honorable Mention in Fast Company’s list of 2021 World Changing Ideas.
