National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

It’s November. And that mean’s it’s National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. The Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation is familiar with the topic and so are some of their Annual Dialogue attendees.


We want to extend a big thank you to all of the community leaders who joined us on October 10th (Madison) and October 11 (Milwaukee) to engage in our 7th Annual Dialogue – Women & Aging: The Impact of Dementia. The moderated panel discussion of state leaders (see panelists below) engaged the audience with presentations and a Q &  A about the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and impact of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. Discussions were focused on an attempt to improve healthcare outcomes for Wisconsin women, families and communities.

Panelists included:


Elizabeth Chapman, MD

Malgorzata Franczak, MD**
