Cambridge Council on Aging (COA) invites you to join us for Part 3 of the 3-part lecture series on Memory, Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Today's Lecture:  Pathways to Prevention: Maximizing Brain-Healthy Behavior to Protect from Cognitive Decline

As life expectancy increases in the U.S. and globally, with a growing number of older individuals each year, the prevalence of Alzheimer disease and other dementias is on the rise. Fortunately, there is significant evidence that certain healthy behaviors can decrease the chance of developing new or worsening cognitive problems. 

Dr. Seth Gale and Hope Schwartz (Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Brain/Mind Medicine) will provide an overview of cognitive aging and Alzheimer disease, focusing on modifiable risk factors for dementia. This program will review current research in diet, mindfulness, sleep, exercise, and social and cognitive activities, and will also explore the lifestyle changes you can make today to maximize your brain health for the future.
