How to Keep a Healthy Brain During (and After) a Pandemic Without Really Trying. 

Dr. Robert F. Halliwell BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD School of Pharmacy, University of the Pacific

Americans are now living longer than ever before, so we face the challenge of a longer phase of life when time and tide begin to take their toll on our bodies and on our brains. We are also currently living through the most serious pandemic in generations. This presentation will consider recent evidence that lifestyle, education and community engagements can reduce stress and risk of disease, slow down the brain aging process and enhance a long and healthy life.
