You’ll learn about the brain and memory and how they work and age; explore what a brain healthy lifestyle is: balanced nutrition, stress management, physical and mental exercises; and hear about tools and techniques you can use to keep your brain sharp in this fascinating talk on preserving the health of our aging brains.
