“Healthy Living for your Brain and Body” – For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected.  But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age.  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 these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.
