Title: Hormones’ Impact on Cognitive Health & Alzheimer’s
The Gratitude Fund at The Dallas Foundation
There is no such thing as a gendered brain, but women’s brains do age differently from men’s, and those differences matter for our health. Nearly two thirds of the 5+ million Americans living with Alzheimer’s are women, the most common cause of dementia. Why?
Dr. Lisa Mosconi will share groundbreaking findings from her research, focused on the intersection of neuroscience and women’s health, to reveal how decreasing hormonal levels affect brain aging–and share a roadmap to support lifelong brain health. She is the founder and Director of the Women’s Brain Initiative and Associate Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine, where she also serves as Associate Professor of Neuroscience in Neurology and Radiology. She is the author of The New York Times bestselling books THE XX BRAIN and BRAIN FOOD.
Virtual talks will take place on Zoom.
The Brain: An Owners’ Guide series will be virtual in 2021 and registration will be completely free of charge!
