Women and Alzheimer's: Why Are We at Higher Risk and What Can Be Done with Belmont Village Senior Living

March 24, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Join us for an informative presentation as we dive into Alzheimer’s Disease and its prevalence in women. Dr. Karen will explore why women are at a greater risk for dementia and share the key components of a brain-protective lifestyle so women can reduce their risk. 

Dr. Karen is trained as a medical doctor in Australia and has dedicated the last 25 years to health promotion and wellness. She is skilled at delivering complex medical, biological and nutritional information in understandable ways. She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Wellness Institute in 2016. She was previously the Medical Director of the Australian Government Health Service, where she spent 8 years in the administration of national health care, wellness and senior programs.

At age 65, a woman is twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than a man. By age 75, she is three times as likely. The good news is there is a mounting body of research suggesting that maintaining a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of dementia by more than 33%.
