Program Description
Two-thirds of the people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease are women, and women also make up the majority of caregivers. So, in addition to being a societal concern, Alzheimer’s disease can also be considered a women’s health issue.

This program will review the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, current treatment options, and the impact of this disease on persons living with dementia, their families, and our communities. In addition, it will describe the cutting-edge clinical programs and research being done at UW-Madison to increase Alzheimer’s awareness, improve health equity and quality of care, diagnose the disease earlier, and treat it more effectively.

Speaker Biography
Dr. Cindy Carlsson is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Geriatrics at UW-Madison and the Madison VA Hospital. After completing her medical degree at the University of Michigan, she moved to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to complete her residency and fellowship training and then joined the UW faculty in 2003. Since that time, Dr. Carlsson has served as the Co-Director of the Madison VA Memory Assessment Clinic where she continues to see patients weekly. She has been a part of both National Institutes of Health and Veterans Affairs national initiatives to improve dementia care for older adults. Her research focuses on the relationship of vascular risk factors and their treatment on the development of Alzheimer’s disease, integrating use of novel spinal fluid, imaging, and cognitive biomarkers. She has received research support from NIH, the VA, UW, and other philanthropic organizations. She currently serves as Interim Director of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute and Leader of the Clinical Core of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

Fall Session
Tuesday, October 23, 7:30 - 9:15 a.m.

Maria Triana and Nizida Arriaga, moderated by Binnu Palta Hill
Women in Leadership: Exploring the Gender Gap

Women continue to face challenges as they advance to leadership positions, and encounter cultural norms in the workplace that are at times at odds with their authority. These challenges range from equal pay (in the United States in 2018, women earn 80 cents for every dollar a man earns) to every day subtle messages that question female leadership (24% of executive positions in the corporate sector are held by White women, and less than 5% are held by women of color.)

In this session, we will discuss these issues both from an academic perspective as well as from lived experience. Professor Mary Triana researches diversity in organizations, and Nizida Arriaga, a WSB MBA alumna is one of the few Latinas to have held high ranking positions in the financial investment industry (most recently as Managing Director at Nuveen Investments.) They will reflect on their experiences and share insights on overcoming gender issues that are subtle but have profound effects on both men and women in an organization.

This panel discussion will be facilitated by Binnu Palta Hill, Assistant Dean of Diversity and Inclusion at the Wisconsin School of Business at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
