The Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation (ARPF) will host the virtual Brain Longevity Symposium on October 15, 2022. The Symposium will advance ARPF’s mission by equipping attendees with the latest research on Spiritual Fitness to prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and to create perfect health as we age.

This historic conference starts with morning yoga and features three keynote presentations, along with an opportunity to engage with the experts. The lineup includes some of the world’s leading clinicians and researchers in the field of spirituality and brain health: Helen Lavretsky, MD, MS, Katerina Sheardova, MD, PhD, and Christopher Walling, PsyD, MBA, C-IAYT, SEP. 

The presenters will unveil groundbreaking research on how the practice of yoga can lead to spirituality and how spirituality can reduce the risk for AD. Furthermore, attendees will explore how the quality of our relationships is essential to the quality of our lifespans. Dr. Lavretsky from UCLA is one of the world’s leading professors in the field of creating psycho-spiritual and emotional well-being, resilience, and reducing depression. She is an author and outstanding speaker who has a strong spiritual foundation and personal practice. 

The European expert, Dr. Sheardova, “Is an absolutely amazing physician and researcher. She is a leading teacher and practitioner of yoga, meditation, and healthy living. She has made her work easy to understand so you can enjoy the benefits of your own well-being and spiritual growth,” said ARPF President, Dharma S. Khalsa, MD.
