Research has identified modifiable risk factors for dementia, such as physical inactivity, hypertension and diabetes. This course will discuss strategies that clinicians can use to address risk factors and lifestyle interventions with their patients that have been shown to improve brain health.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • List 6 or more modifiable risk factors for dementia.
  • Recognize strategies needed to reduce the risk of developing dementia, examining environmental influences and lifestyle factors.
  • Learn about evidence-based approaches to improve overall brain health.
  • Identify special considerations for high-risk populations.
