More women than men have Alzheimer’s disease and the numbers are growing. Both sex (biological factors) and gender (social factors) most likely work together to contribute to this predominance. In order to prevent AD in women, we need to understand early in life the factors affecting women that lead to eventual dementia. In this webinar we discuss what is known about the underlying causes and suggest future directions for research.
