Today is World Alzheimer's Day. Did you know that Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, affecting millions globally?
- The disease affects twice as many women
- 1 in 3 people born today will go on to develop Alzheimer's
Sharing knowledge about women’s health issues is a huge part of what we represent and recognising the stark reality that Alzheimer's disease is more prevalent in females, we are committed to raising awareness of neurological health.
Research is the key to understanding Alzheimer's better, developing effective treatments, and ultimately finding a cure. Our partners Glasgow Memory Clinic, who are a NeuroClin centre, are currently accepting applicants across Scotland for research studies into Alzheimer’s disease, including early detection. Consultations take place at their state-of the-art research clinic based near Motherwell. Participation is free.

As a club that strives to help the community and in particular champion women and girls we are proud to be part of this campaign.
