Longevity & Lifestyle
Dr. Lisa Mosconi, founder and director of the Nutrition & Brain Fitness Lab at the NYU School of Medicine, will give a talk on the role of nature (genes) versus nurture (lifestyles), and specifically on whether and, if so, how positive dietary choices can reduce the risk of dementia. Dr. Mosconi explains that despite an increase in life expectancy, we are “facing a brain health crisis”. She argues that because the brain changes leading to dementia, for example, unfold over a 20 to 40 year time span, there is a precious window of time. Preventive strategies, such as lifestyle adjustments, during this crucial timespan may well make disease modification possible. Dr. Mosconi considers diet and nutrition to play a particularly important role in this.
