Summitt joins network fighting Alzheimer’s disease
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt is joining the WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s network as an honorary founder.
WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s is a national network of women working to speed the pace of research to fight Alzheimer’s disease. In a statement released by the organization Tuesday, Summitt said that “my fight is not only a personal one, but one for all those battling Alzheimer’s disease… recognizing the majority fighting this disease are women.”
Summitt won 1,098 games and eight national titles in 38 seasons as Tennessee’s coach before stepping down in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. She remains on staff as head coach emeritus.
Summitt also works toward fighting Alzheimer’s disease through her Pat Summitt Foundation.
