Education Outreach: To End Alzheimer’s, Women Need to Lead
by Tryn Rose Seley, BLS
The Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation hosted a booth at the State Convention of Delta Kappa Gamma Arizona in early June. Delta Kappa Gamma’s mission is to promote professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.
The attendees shared their stories of relatives and friends with dementia, and how learning about the Brain Longevity® Therapy Training and the 4 Pillars of Prevention® gave them new hope about the ways they can 1) eat more thoughtfully, 2) decrease stress more purposefully, 3) exercise more regularly, and 4) show their level of spiritual fitness continually, which is natural for these dedicated, devoted women who practice selfless service to students in many contexts.
We share a core value: we know that women lead the charge in taking strides towards a world with healthy lifestyles and healthy brains. The Foundation’s BLTT flyer says: “To end Alzheimer’s, women need to lead. Did you know that women are twice as likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s than men? Women also make up more than 60% of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers. Suffice to say, it’s going to be up to women to create the change needed to stop this disease. The good news is we CAN make a difference. Research shows that smart lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and the perfect place to learn how is right here.” Visit arpf.com to join our wise and thoughtful community of Brain Longevity Specialists.
