Description

While cognitive decline can be a feature of aging, emerging science is revealing the role of nutrition in preserving cognitive health and preventing some of the top neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. In this virtual series, Plant Powered Metro New York will feature leading physicians, researchers, and health coaches to explore the remarkable connection between what we eat and the vitality and resilience of our brains. Offering practical learning and lifestyle tips in the kitchen and the grocery store, Nourish Your Mind will empower you to optimize your well-being and quality of life.

In our first session, John Duda, MD, in conversation with Rachel Dolhun, MD, DipABLM, from The Michael J. Fox Foundation, shares evidence suggesting that we may be able to slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease with diet and other lifestyle practices. Followed by a Q&A and a taste of what’s to come in the upcoming sessions.

Dr. John Duda is the national director of the Parkinson's Disease Research, Education and Clinical Center for the Department of Veterans Affairs. He is also an associate professor of neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Presented in partnership with the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, Riverdale Senior Services, JASA and the Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center..
