Reduce Your Risk of Cognitive Decline as You Age

Reduce Your Risk of Cognitive Decline as You Age

About This Webinar

Cognitive decline is a source of fear and mystery for many adults, especially older adults. However, confronting that fear and solving that mystery may be easier than you think. Research on memory has started to focus less on the mechanics of the brain and more on understanding how lifestyle factors, including nutrition, chronic conditions, emotional health, and brain training, among others, may influence memory function and performance. Join us as we discuss cognitive decline in the context of lifestyle choices and habits that may help to reduce your risk for a diagnosis later in life and give you confidence that you are more β€œin control” than you might imagine when it comes to brain health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine broad aspects of cognitive decline.
  • Identify nutrition as a protective lifestyle choice for brain health.
  • Engage in training exercises to support brain function.
