NEW! The Healthy Brain  Thursday, December 3rd  11am – 12:00pm  Free
Presented on Zoom to join/watch from home by computer or Phone. Brain Health and Heart Health are very similar but most of us do not think about brain Health. Age and health are often dependent on your genes but lifestyle choices can help to maintain both a healthy body and brain. As we age there are normal changes affecting your brain but we can still learn new things, create new memories and improve all around wellbeing. There are risks that can be eliminated to support good brain health. The discussion will include tips to enhance brain health and what you can do now to support a healthy brain.
