Nutrition and Alzheimer's Disease
According to the World Health Organization, around 50 million persons worldwide deal with some kind of dementia and 5% to 8% of the population above 60 years of age will develop it at some point, being the most common the Alzheimer's disease. Although there is no known cure yet, it has become a public health priority and important progress is being made not only by scientists, but also in understanding what factors about lifestyle, environment, and nutrition can slow down the development of symptoms.
If you have a relative dealing with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, remember you are not alone, and many resources are available. If this is your case or you just want to learn how to take better care of an elder person or yourself as you age, join us in this activity.
We will attend the free lecture “Nutrición en el adulto mayor con Alzheimer” by nutritionist Karla Vilchis Méndez. The lecture will be in Spanish because it is not exclusive for InterNations. At the end we can go for a cup of coffee if you are up to.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
See you soon.
