Sex and Gender in Cognitive Decline

with Jessica Caldwell, PhD, ABPP-CN

Date: Wednesday, September 6th

Time: 6-8 pm PST

Live Webinar via Zoom

Dr. Caldwell earned her B.A. with highest honors in psychology at Princeton University, and her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a minor in neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She completed predoctoral internship at Harvard University/Massachusetts General Hospital and postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology and neuroimaging at Brown University.

She currently holds a primary academic appointment as Assistant Professor of Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, in the Department of Neurology. She also holds a secondary appointment as Assistant Professor at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, in the Department of Neurosciences

Dr. Caldwell is passionate about studying sex differences in Alzheimer’s disease and addressing these differences in the real world. Her clinical neuropsychology work focuses on assessing women at risk for dementia as well as adult and geriatric patients with concerns of memory loss. Her research examines the ways that Alzheimer’s disease development and brain impact differs in men and women, and also explores Alzheimer’s prevention approaches in women.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

      1. Differentiate sex-based versus gender-based risks for cognitive decline
      2. Identify at least three possible roles of sex hormones in memory risk and resilience
      3. Describe at least three ways in which cognitive aging and Alzheimer's disease trajectories may differ by sex or gender
      4. Identify at least three unknown factors for further research in the field of sex and gender and its impact on Alzheimer's disease
      5. Apply knowledge of sex and gender in cognitive decline to clinical assessment and research tasks

      Early Bird rates through Monday, September 4th!
