The Alzheimer’s Association Oklahoma Chapter will host the 2022 Tulsa AWARE Luncheon on Tuesday, November 8 at 11:30 a.m. at Southern Hills Country Club. AWARE (The Alliance of Women for Alzheimer's Research and Education) is a movement to raise awareness of the effect Alzheimer's disease has on women. Tulsa Co-chairs are Mary Ann Cameron and Bethany Good with Honorary Chair Tina Parkhill.
In Oklahoma, more than 67,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s, and 129,000 friends and family serve as their unpaid caregivers. Across the country, over 13 million women are either living with the disease or caring for someone who has the disease.
This unbalanced burden forces women to make difficult, yet necessary, decisions that impact our families, our careers, and relationships,
As the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and the 3rd leading cause among seniors, Alzheimer's is a disease that selfishly sandwiches generations of loved ones in an endless battle where no one wins.
As women, we are unique. Our brains are inventive, smart, powerful and creative. Together, our goal is to raise one united voice with the passion and commitment to make a real change, and that change is to “lead the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia --- by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support”.
When we talk about Alzheimer's, we raise awareness, inspire action and change the future. Together, we can support the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association in their mission to find a cure for this devastating disease.
