WAM at Cleveland Clinic is the preeminent organization focused on women and Alzheimer’s. Originally founded as the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM), the non-profit organization was created to answer the question of why two out of every three brains that develop Alzheimer’s belong to women, and why women of color are at even higher risk. In 2010, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Takes on Alzheimer’s made news when it reported for the first time that contrary to prevailing opinion, Alzheimer’s did–and does–discriminate against women. This groundbreaking report, a collaboration between WAM Founder, Maria Shriver and the Alzheimer’s Association, opened a new chapter in the Alzheimer’s story. In 2020, WAM opened the first Alzheimer’s prevention center dedicated to women at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, Cleveland Clinic NV, and in 2022 joined forces formally with the Cleveland Clinic to become WAM at Cleveland Clinic. The organization is dedicated to changing the future of Alzheimer’s, one woman at a time.
