Brian R. Ott M.D. Annual Research Symposium

Topic: What Science Tells Us About How What You Eat Affects Your Brain
Speaker: Nancy Emerson Lombardo, PhD
When: Thursday, November 2, 2017
            5:30pm Reception and Cash Bar
            6:00pm Presentation
Where: Radisson Hotel Providence Airport, Warwick, RI



Dr. Emerson Lombardo is Adjunct Research Assistant Professor of Neurology at Boston University School of Medicine, Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center and recipient of an Alzheimer's Association grant to study a combination of nutritional supplements. She is Founder and President of the Brain Health and Wellness Center which promotes over 11 evidence-based brain healthy lifestyles. Dr. Emerson Lombardo serves on the Medical Scientific Advisory Committee for the MA/NH Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

Join us as we learn what the latest research is telling us in how to differentiate foods beneficial to human brains from foods that are destructive to brains. We will discuss and identify evidence based goals for brain healthy nutrition and compare several "brain healthy" diets. Brain research, including clinical trials and imaging studies, offer dramatic proof that brain healthy nutrition and other lifestyles not only reduce risk of Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline but can slow progression in early Alzheimer's and Mild Cognitive Impairment. The symposium is open to the public at no cost. Free parking available.
