Brain Health Workshop for Seniors

Lorna Harvey from

You are invited to join a workshop focusing on how to keep your brain healthy and active. You will learn about things you can for brain health in older age, such as good nutrition and sleep, and social support.
After a talk from a nutritionist, we will prepare a meal together, eat, and discuss social support.

This innovative four-part workshop is part of a research project aimed at designing social activities and keeping our brains healthy in older age.
