Brain Health Workshops

What's good for the heart is also good for the brain!

For many years, scientists around the world have focused their attention on heart health because cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally. Although not eradicated, heart health has improved and rates of death from heart disease are declining.
Because rates of death from Alzheimer’s Disease are increasing, scientific research is now focusing on a new frontier, brain health! Research is now teaching us how to enhance our brain’s health for a clearer, sharper mind …. IF we begin working on it early.
