Poor nutrition and diet are major health problems that affect every part of the body, including the brain. In fact, they are among the top risk factors for dementia. With food as medicine emerging as an important concept, this course provides strategies to assess diet quality and use that information to help individuals make healthy dietary modifications to build cognitive resilience.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • List 6 or more modifiable risk factors for dementia.
  • Summarize the link between nutrition and dementia.
  • Identify effective interventions and strategies to address nutrition with a special focus on adults ages 45 and older.
  • Identify special considerations for high-risk populations.
