This conference has already taken place.
This symposium will focus on healthy aging and promoting brain health for those with and without dementia through diet, exercise, and sleep. The symposium will also share research that supports the impact of exercise, diet, vision care, oral care and hearing on brain health as well how neuropsychological evaluations can help in distinguishing healthy aging versus dementia. Participants will be equipped with information on lifestyle activities( i.e. early screening/early diagnosis, diet, exercise, sleep) that can keep the brain healthy while improving their quality of life and cognitive functioning.
