National Highlight and Recognition
Girl power: Amazing Grace Women and the National Campaign about Alzheimer’s
The national campaign, AlzheimHER’s Chorus, a vocal group made of women living with the disease or affected by Alzheimer’s, is a collaborative effort of the Alzheimer’s Association and Maria Shriver’s Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. Female members of WAI Amazing Grace Chorus® joined this national campaign to increase understanding about Alzheimer’s impact on women, with the goal of raising awareness that two-thirds of people living with Alzheimer’s are women.
The Amazing Grace Chorus® was filmed performing, and that video is part of the national campaign:
