Ravenswood, West Virginia – The Alzheimer’s Association, West Virginia Chapter is hosting a Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body workshop on Thursday, March 30, at 1 p.m. in Ravenswood at Jackson County Public Library – Ravenswood Branch, located at 323 Virginia Street.

At any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline.

This workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits associated with healthy aging: cognitive activity, physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, and social engagement. For each area, the program will cover what we know, drawing on current research, as well as what can be done to improve or maintain overall health in each area.

Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body is a free workshop for individuals of any age who are looking for information on ways to age as well as possible.
