The impact of Alzheimer's disease on women
from By Denise A. Valenti
In a role that won her this year's Oscar for best actress, Julianne Moore plays Alice Howland, a college professor who is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease in "Still Alice." The Alzheimer's Association praises the film and describes it as "a movie that gives us a rare window into the experience of living with Alzheimer's disease — a glimpse of the inside looking out." Women are significantly impacted by Alzheimer's disease. In fact, two-thirds of those with AD are female.
