Science-Based Strategies to Support Your Brain Health
Maintaining a healthy brain is crucial for a good quality of life as we age. The good news is there are steps you can take in mid-life and later life to reduce the risk of cognitive decline in your later years.
In this noontime webinar, we will explore the relationship between lifestyle choices, such as diet, movement, and sleep, in mitigating or promoting cognitive decline. We will also discuss emerging risk factors such as hearing loss, high blood pressure, and gum disease, which are increasingly linked to dementia. Walk away with a better understanding of how your daily habits reduce your risk of cognitive decline, including 1-2 practical steps you can take right away to keep your brain in optimal condition.
This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
