THE ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Presented in 2017 to Maria Shriver, founder of the Women's Alzheimer's Movement. In 2010, her groundbreaking Shriver Report was the first to reveal the disproportionate effect Alzheimer's has on women—findings which inspired the creation of the Alzheimer's Association's Women's Alzheimer's Research Initiative. Since her father's diagnosis in 2003, Ms. Shriver has been a leading voice for the Alzheimer's community, connecting families, scientists, elected officials and other stakeholders together to work toward wiping out the disease. She has used her voice as a journalist, author, filmmaker and activist to raise awareness about the disease's disproportionate impact on women and to raise funds for women's based research.
The Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum is the nation's premier Alzheimer's disease advocacy event.
