Support for the Nutrition and the Brain conference generously provided by:
Brain disorders are the newest frontier in medical science. At this conference, some of the world’s foremost experts share the latest insights on the role of nutrients in Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and other conditions.
On Friday, July 19, the focus is on how a fascinating interplay of dietary fats and trace metals may damage delicate brain structures, and the dietary patterns that may protect the brain. On Saturday, the scope widens to include the surprising effects of exercise and sleep on brain structures, the even more surprising effects of chemotherapy, a hopeful new intervention for multiple sclerosis, and details on how clinicians can help their patients.
Learning Objectives include the following:
- Describe dietary factors associated with reduced risk of developing dementia
- Explain how lifestyle interventions, such as sleep and exercise, may reduce the risk of brain disorders
- Learn how genes, environment, and nutrition interact to influence risk of Alzheimer’s disease
- List the characteristics of a dietary approach to multiple sclerosis
