The one-hour show is brought to you by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and its partners AARP and NRTA: AARP’s educator community. Catch it live at 10 pm EDT/9 pm CT, either on television or via a web stream.
Staying Sharp on AARP Live! will feature three segments with one commercial break. In the first segment, RFD-TV host Mark Oppold will talk to AARP State Directors from Wyoming and South Dakota about a recent AARP member poll, which showed that staying sharp was an issue of top importance to seniors. Next, Oppold will talk to Dr. Byrne about the key messages for Staying Sharp: the four factors of a brain healthy lifestyle. Those factors are: increasing mental, physical, and social activity, and minding your numbers, such as weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure. The final segment will be an opportunity for the audience to call in with their questions.
