Richmond: Fighting Alzheimer’s: Healthy Habits to Keep Your Brain HealthyTuesday, November 19, 2019
About the Event
Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. So what can we do to prevent or address Alzheimer’s as we age?
We know that the health of the brain and the body are connected. Because of this, we can make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age.
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 lifestyle tips into a plan for healthy aging.
Participants will learn:
- The latest research about brain health
- Lifestyle tips and recommendations to promote brain health as you age
