It’s never too late to start living a brain-healthy life! Our new Successful Aging & Your Brain public service announcement illustrates easy steps (as recommended by the Institute of Medicine) we can all take to keep our brains healthy and sharp as we grow older. The PSA recommends that we stay active with regular exercise, reduce vascular risk factors (like high blood pressure and cholesterol) with good diet, talk to the doctor about diseases and drugs that may impair brain function, and stay active socially and intellectually.
Successful Aging & Your Brain (SA&YB) focuses on understanding how the brain works and maximizing brain function and health. The program includes live public forums, printed resources, and a DVD program. For more information, visit the SA&YB page on our site. You can also find a free download for the new Successful Aging & Your Brain booklets, which were recently translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Italian.
