Alzheimer’s Prevention for Women.
We help women reduce their risks for Alzheimer’s disease.
Who are we and What do we do?
The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement Prevention Center at Cleveland Clinic is a one of a kind center in Las Vegas that offers the nation’s first women-specific center for Alzheimer’s disease prevention, research, and caregiving support.
We offer women a comprehensive online, lab-based, and in-person assessment of Alzheimer’s risk, and personalized lifestyle recommendations from a medical doctor and a psychologist with advanced training in Alzheimer’s disease.
We also offer optional diet and exercise classes, designed to support life change and make it sustainable in the real world.
Women experience some risks for Alzheimer’s disease that men don’t—like menopause. Women also have greater rates of some risks, like depression and low activity levels. In addition, some risks impact women more than men—like having a copy of the APOE-4 allele and having diabetes.
We also know that women are not always heard in medical settings, and that women in their 30s to 50s—the age at which science tells us to implement prevention strategies—are pressed for time due to family and career obligations. At our center, women are the focus. We appreciate your needs and concerns, and are ready to listen and help. We are in this fight together.
