Brain health is about making the most of your brain, helping to reduce some of the risks to its health as you age. Reducing the risk of brain disease before symptoms appear is crucial to healthy brain ageing.

Established on the evidence-based report Time Matters: a call to prioritze brain healththis session addresses the necessity of communicating the risk of brain disease to people during the ‘window of opportunity’ in mid-life and supporting them in leading a brain-healthy lifestyle to improve outcomes in later life. From the management of those at risk of developing neurodegenerative disease to patient experience, it shines a light on the importance of healthy brain lifestyles.

Join us to discuss how to increase public understanding of brain disease prevention and share in the message that “what's good for the heart is good for the brain.”
