Preventing Alzheimer’s in Your 50s & 60s
When it comes to Alzheimer’s disease, doctors can see changes in the brain decades before memory and thinking problems appear. This means it’s never too early, or too late, to start making changes to benefit cognitive health at any age. Join Banner Health experts for an online event focused on providing usable strategies you can start today to keep your brain sharp. Personalized by age, you’ll be able to review your own heart health risks and understand how it plays into your memory and thinking abilities. The experts will share ways to maintain, or improve, cognitive outcomes as you get older. By starting small, you can make big changes and our memory experts are here to give you the guidance needed to take the first step.
