Brain Health Bootcamp

It’s never too late to take action on brain health for the millions of people who worry about their own memory and that of a loved one. Brain health is about making the most of your brain and taking action to reduce the risk of cognitive decline as you age. Strong evidence shows that you can protect your brain health by making key lifestyle changes, such as getting regular exercise, engaging with other people, keeping your heart healthy and asking your doctor for regular brain health check-ups. Participants in this session will learn why a healthy brain is important to overall well-being, how to raise the topic of memory with your loved ones and health care providers, action steps you can take every day to protect your brain, and the barriers that caregivers face in taking care of their own brain health.
