He will introduce the four pillars of brain health: proper nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and avoidance of toxins. In the second half of this presentation, Dr. Maroon will discuss advances in brain trauma treatment in both sports and older adults.

Cognitive Brain Health Program at St. BarnabasThis is a program of empowerment!

Simple changes in what you do every day may cut your odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The goal is not just to live longer, but to live a happier and healthier life.

Our fate is not locked in place by our genes

Scientific research reveals that our fate is not necessarily locked in place by our genes, rather through our own choices we can take control of our health.

Dementia develops over time

Researchers now know that Alzheimer’s develops over time and can be influenced by lifestyle factors such as high blood pressure or cholesterol, obesity, depression, nutrition, sleep and physical activity.
