On Friday, April 5th, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, Sarah Widmeyer joins Being Patient Live Talks to discuss her experience caring for her mother, Elaine, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2022, and how the experience set her off on path to advocating for more gender diversity in clinical research. Widmeyer is an SVP of Wealth Strategies and CMO at Richardson Wealth, and she’s passionate about improving research and access to care for women.

  1. My mothers’ mother was affected by this when she turned 90, Her daughter, my mother, will be 95 in may and shes been affected by this for some years now, and her neurology /meds
    has her body shaking at times. Her sister was affected but has passed 2+yrs now, my sister passed last summer from lung cancer, but there is a possibility to test her daughter.

    1. Hi Warren, thank you for sharing. You are certainly not alone. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Live Talk with Sarah Widmeyer on April 5th!
