On June 4, Maria Shriver brought her Move for Minds event to the Irvine Equinox Sports Club to support women’s brain research into Alzheimer’s and raise awareness of the fact that Alzheimer’s disproportionately impacts women. For the second year in a row, UCI MIND Co-Director Dr. Joshua Grill served as a panelist at the event. After an introduction from Maria Shriver herself, Dr. Grill spoke on the disproportionate risk for Alzheimer’s disease among women and then took questions from the audience, who had just completed a brain-healthy workout. The event was simultaneously held at Equinox Sports Clubs in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Miami and Washington, D.C., as well as Orange County.
Move for Minds is an unprecedented gathering of empowered women, men and leading experts who believe funding women’s brain research will help us solve the Alzheimer’s epidemic. UCI MIND is a proud partner to this event and to Ms. Shriver’s organization.
