RECAP: 2019 BRAIN LONGEVITY® SYMPOSIUM
Following the Therapy Training was our first annual Brain Longevity Symposium. This was designed to give past graduates more opportunities to learn and grow within a supportive network. We could not be more pleased with how it unfolded.
“It was well balanced, well organized, and representative of multiple disciplines. Thoroughly enjoyed.” – 2019 Symposium Participant. The speakers were invigorating and encouraging. Dr. Miia Kivipelto, Dr. Kim Innes, Dr. Christian Habeck, Dr. Lori Fazzio, Mahan Kim Kaur, Carol Hahn and ARPF President Dr. Dharma shared the latest research, trials, and tools for preventing Alzheimer’s disease. A few topics covered were: Early Memory Loss, Healing the Healer, Yoga Therapy in Healthcare, and Building Your Brain.
Access to this research keeps BLTT graduates on the forefront of brain health science. It also provides grads with a network of like-minded professionals and a connection to the top experts in mental health. Our Brain Longevity Specialists are filling the gap by incorporating this vital research in their own careers and communities. By harnessing this information, they can use it for their own wellbeing, that of loved ones, and the health of their clients.
In May 2019, the World Health Organization’s Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said, “In the next 30 years, the number of people with dementia is expected to triple. We need to do everything we can to reduce our risk of dementia. The scientific evidence gathered for these Guidelines confirm what we have suspected for some time, that what is good for our heart, is also good for our brain.”* This is exactly the message that our Brain Longevity Specialists are now bringing in our communities and we couldn’t be happier.
“I just wanted to let everyone at ARPF know how much I appreciate all the work you put into the speakers and presentation. As a past BLTT graduate, I really enjoyed attending the Symposium and hope that this is something you will be offering in the future. The information was interesting, thought provoking and very useful. It was energizing to be with the 2019 graduates– the enthusiasm is contagious!” – Debbie S. 2018 Graduate
