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.
