by Avila Institute Staff

January 31, 2023

The new NRRO cosponsored webinar "A New Look at Brain Aging: Helping Community Members Understand, Manage, and Maintain Brain Health"  is scheduled for Tuesday, February 14, 2023 from 1:00-2:00 pm ET. It will be presented by Alfred Norwood, MBA, BS.
View/download flyer and registration directions.


For over 50 years, the common perspective on brain aging has been one of inevitable decline in thinking skills and memory. Recent research has illuminated the new, more hopeful perspective that proactive interventions can prevent or decelerate brain function decline, while appropriate reactive interventions can minimize existing losses. Lifestyle choices, such as adequate physical and mental exercise, sleep, social activity, stress management, and a sense of purpose are key factors in healthy brain function. Other important factors, like a managed surrounding environment, better scheduled interventions, and more educated caregivers can also help maintain quality of life.

This presentation will highlight the ways that members of religious communities can better understand and assess cognitive decline within their community, procedures to determine which interventions may be helpful for those experiencing cognitive decline and how to implement them, and ways to develop systems that contribute to the long-term health and well-being of the entire community.

This NRRO cosponsored webinar is designed for individual members of Congregations as well as community leadership and healthcare providers.
This webinar is FREE for congregational members and their staff.
Please contact us for more information.

It is $59.00 for all other registrants.
