Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research
[IOWA] June 1, 2016 – At any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline.

- Cognitive activity.
- Physical health and exercise.
- Diet and nutrition.
- Social engagement.
In each area, we will discuss what we know, drawing on current research, as well as what we can do — steps to take now to improve or maintain overall health in each area.
