The Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association has inducted Robinson+Cole lawyer Amanda Gordon Schreiber into its 2017 Class of Women's Champions, an initiative comprised of inspirational women who are committed to making the work of the Alzheimer’s Association a priority in their lives.
Amanda Gordon Schreiber is a member of Robinson+Cole's Health and Benefits Litigation Group, representing managed care organizations and health, life, and disability insurers. Her commitment to raising awareness about Alzheimer's is fostered by her own experience with two family members being diagnosed with the disease.
“I’m honored to have been selected as a Women’s Champion, joining the ranks of inspirational women who have dedicated themselves to the fight against Alzheimer’s,” said Ms. Gordon Schreiber. “I want to raise awareness of the disease and funding for its research not just for those, like my family members, that suffer from it today, but for my generation and the generations to come.”
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. A cumulative group that grows with each new class, the Women’s Champions are empowered to use their unique experience, passion, and influence to advance the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association through advocacy, education, outreach, and philanthropy.
