"Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body"
(1 in a series of 3)

Wednesday, February 3, 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science can provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity, social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.

What an amazing planet we have. There are so many interesting plants and animals. Neuroscientist, Dr. Karen Glendenning, has tied together some interesting facts about our planet by going through time. When did we have slime, fungus, plants, reptiles, etc.? This will lead to a second presentation on February 11 which will cover what is intelligence and when did it begin.
