Building on what research about brain health has uncovered, this webinar will give you a non-clinical perspective on ways to maintain and even enhance cognitive function as we age. Discover the ingredients needed for a brain-healthy lifestyle and how to integrate them into your life in fun, engaging and creative ways. We will also discuss free and low-cost resources for yourself and/or the clients your serve.

  • List three practical ways to maintain brain fitness
  • Describe at least one brain fitness strategy that you can integrate into your life
  • Identify print, on-line and community brain-health resources
