Christine Hartmann's curator insight, March 12, 2015 11:40 AM

Maria Shriver, Peabody and Emmy-winning journalist and producer, a six-time New York Times best-selling author, and an NBC News Special Anchor and founder of A Woman's NationTM and the Alzheimer's Association yesterday have announced the launch of Maria Shriver's Wipe Out Alzheimer's™ Challenge, a global health initiative powered by women's brains to end Alzheimer's disease. Informed and inspired by The Shriver Report, A Woman's Nation Takes on Alzheimer's, the Wipe Out Alzheimer's Challenge is a multi-pronged campaign to mobilize women to raise funds to fuel cutting-edge research on women and Alzheimer's and commit to getting educated, engaged and empowered to wipe out this staggering epidemic.

Alzheimer’s disease is a topic close to home for Shriver since her father Sargent Shriver passed away from the disease in 2011.

More than five million Americans are living with the disease, two-thirds are women. Of the 5 million people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's in the United States, 3.2 million are women.
