Women & the Brain is an initiative of Project ALS which proposes a threepronged approach to making a difference in women’s brain health and research:
Educate women through events that raise awareness about the brain
Support the most promising research in the field of brain disease through a Women & the Brain Fellowship for Advancement in Brain Science
Empower a young female neurologist through a Women & the Brain Scholarship
Experts say that brain disease—including ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s—is the next epidemic of the 21st century. Whether as a patient, a concerned relative, or as a caregiver all women will be touched by a neurological disease in their lifetime.
Women have taken control of understanding their heart, breast and reproductive health, but the brain remains the last frontier in human health. While women are disproportionately affected by health problems related to brain aging, men are often the primary focus of research. In order to promote a shift in women’s brain health, we must foster greater research and understanding in this field.
