Learn about the latest research into Alzheimer’s and preventive steps we can take NOW to maintain our brain health. 

For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. 

Research is still evolving, but evidence is strong that people can reduce their risk of cognitive decline by making key lifestyle changes, including participating in regular physical activity, staying socially engaged, and maintaining good heart health.

Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity, and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.

What to expect:  You will learn to create a plan for healthy aging by identifying the reasons for taking care of yourself (and your brain) as you age. Identify strategies to age well in the areas of physical health and exercise, nutrition, cognitive activity, and social engagement.  Learn how to incorporate what you learn into a plan for healthy aging and strategies for sticking to the plan.
