As life expectancy increases in the U.S. and globally with a growing number of older individuals each year, the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia is on the rise. Fortunately, there is significant evidence that certain healthy behaviors can decrease the chance of developing new or worsening cognitive problems.

Dr. Seth Gale and Hope Schwartz (Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Brain/Mind Medicine) will provide an overview of cognitive aging and Alzheimer’s disease, focusing on modifiable risk factors for dementia. This program will review current research in diet, mindfulness, sleep, exercise, and social and cognitive activities, and will also explore the lifestyle changes you can make today to maximize your brain health for the future.

This program is part of Temple Emunah’s Phyllis Klein Thrope Memorial Program, whose aim is to build bridges and promote better understanding between the Jewish community and its neighbors. It seeks to achieve these goals by sponsoring programs that bring together people from throughout the community to examine issues and concerns shared by all. All Phyllis Klein Thrope Memorial Programs are free and open to the public. You are encouraged to invite your neighbors and friends!
