Lake Regional Hosts Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body, Sept. 17

Thursday, August 13, 2020

For centuries, we have understood that the health of the brain and the body are connected, but exactly how that happens was a mystery. Today, scientific research provides us with valuable insights into how people can reduce their risk of cognitive decline by making key lifestyle changes.

"Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research" covers the latest findings on the brain-body connection. The program, delivered through Zoom, begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 17.

Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, this health talk is for health-conscious individuals of any age. It is not intended for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Topics discussed in the one-hour class include an overview of the aging process and how the brain works; plus, information on diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and how these factors impact physical and mental function.

Participants will leave the session equipped with hands-on tools to incorporate recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.

The course is free, but registration is required to receive a Zoom link. To register, visit lakeregional.com/brainbody. For more information, call Lake Regional Community Outreach at 573.348.8222.
