Class to offer tips on preventing Alzheimer's through nutrition

Long before a person might receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, there are nutritional strategies that may assist with prevention.

"Alzheimer's and Nutrition" will be held 12:10-12:50 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 19) in Freehafer Hall, Rooms 1-1 and 1-2.

The prevalence of Alzheimer's continues to rise. Aside from engaging in challenging mental and physical activities, what else can anyone do to decrease the chances of losing cognitive function with age? This class will explore promising nutritional strategies to help keep one's brains thinking as clearly as possible even in the sunset years of life.
