Boost Your Brain Function

The human brain is the most complex and least understood organ in the human body. As the foundation of our thoughts, emotions, sense of self, and movements, the brain and its health depend on a number of variables including genetic factors, environmental influences, and our individual behavior.

It’s common knowledge that eating healthy and exercising are ways that we can help influence our body’s’ health. However, few people think about ways that they can positively influence healthy functioning of their brain.

On Wednesday, March 27, the UIAA’s Lifelong Learning program is proud to feature Steven Anderson, 85MA, 87PhD, director of the neuropsychological rehabilitation program at UI Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Anderson will be speaking at the Des Moines Public Library at 6:30 p.m., where he will discuss recent advances in neuroscience that shed light on optimizing current and future brain function, with an emphasis on ways we can influence our brain health.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is due by noon on Thursday, March 22. We hope to see you there.
