2017 UC Davis Alzheimer's Community Engagement Series This is the fourth lecture in a six part series offered by the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center for the Sacramento metropolitan area and communities throughout Northern California. The theme of this year’s series is healthy brain aging and prevention. Six lectures, planned around this theme, include preventative information on healthy brain aging, vitamins and supplements, diet, alternative medicine approaches, social interaction and exercise. With increasing numbers of adults living longer, the prevalence of cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and related disorders is on the rise. These declines in functional abilities and quality of life have resulted in a growing emphasis on maintaining brain health. A new field of research is emerging in the effectiveness of brain health and wellness classes to improve cognitive function in older individuals and those with brain injuries. An overview of this research and preliminary findings by a team of researchers from the VA Northern California Health System and University of California Davis will be the subject of this talk.  Dr. Juliana Baldo is Associate Director of the Center for Aphasia and Related Disorders at the Northern California Veterans Administration. She is a clinical psychologist with extensive experience studying individuals with brain injury. Her research program has focused on studying the behavioral and neural correlates of cognitive and language changes due to brain injury. This event will be at the UC Davis MIND Institute Auditorium, 2825 50th Street, Sacramento. This series is made possible by the generous support of Sunrise Senior Living, Aegis of Carmichael, Revere Court and Norwood Pines Alzheimer's Care Center. Seating is limited. Reservations are required. For more information call 916-734-5728.
