New Research Finds Lifestyle Change Helps Brain Health


Recent research has shown a direct link to better lifestyle habits helping to keep our brains healthy.

Two presentations this week in the region will highlight what the research has shown, says Diana Butz from the Alzheimer's Association. She says a two year study of people at risk showed some interesting results...


"...so they studied this group for two years and they showed that a combination of physical activity, nutrition, cognitive training and management of heart health risks slowed cognitive decline...."

One presentation will be Tuesday, March 24 at 2:00 p.m. at the Mercer Community Center and another session will be Thursday, March 26 at 1 p.m. at the Lakeland Senior Center in Woodruff. There is no charge to attend. If you have questions, Butz says to call the Alzheimer's Association toll-free number at 800-272-3900.
