(Davenport, IA) – Two women who oversee medical and scientific relations for the American Alzheimer’s Association were recognized as women who were “changing the world” by the Women’s Connection – a 700-member Quad City-based organization.  At a special luncheon held at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf, IA, over 200 members of the women’s organization attended to receive a complete briefing on the state of researching, understanding and treating Alzheimer’s-related dementia.

The event was underwritten by Senior Star at Elmore Place.  Senior Star has had a long-standing relationship with the American Alzheimer’s Association and has numerous corporate officers serving in local, regional and national leadership positions with the organization.
