TOPIC Promoting Brain Health While Aging

Do you sometimes have difficulty remembering people’s names? Do you find yourself entering a room and questioning why did you come here? If you have questions or concerns about memory issues, you will want to attend the June Speaker’s Meeting.

We are very fortunate to welcome Dr. Laura Middleton. Her research aims to identify strategies to promote health, wellbeing and function for those living with, or at risk for dementia. She focuses on the role of physical activity, healthy eating and social engagement and support, recognizing their broad impact on physical, social, and mental wellbeing. In her presentation – “Promoting Brain Health While Aging” she will share some of the findings of her research and how, as seniors, we can learn and benefit from her research on keeping our brains healthy. Dr. Middleton is the co-lead of the Canadian Dementia Learning and Resource Network.

The Bits & Bytes Club has a new mission statement which indicates that as a club we are dedicated to providing opportunities for older adults to learn, share and thrive in their use of technology. While this presentation is not directly related to technology, the strategies, the research and information that Dr. Middleton will share will help us promote our brain health so that we can be better able to thrive in our use of technology.
We are very excited and fortunate to bring Dr. Middleton to our Speaker’s Meeting. We hope you will make every effort to attend to learn more about this important topic for seniors.
