HA DPG Webinar: Feeding Your Brain: The Importance of Omega-3s as You Age

Join Healthy Aging DPG on October 9, 2018, 2018 at 9 a.m. Pacific / 10 Mountain/ 11 Central /12 Eastern. As calcium is to the bones, omega-3s are to the brain. Nearly 60% of our brain is made up of fat, and omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood are essential for brain development and function, helping neurons trigger and cells regenerate. In this webinar, NIH Acting Section Chief Capt. Joseph Hibbeln, MD, will cover the latest science on seafood and omega-3s for healthy aging, including depression, memory, Alzheimer’s and dementia. After, The MIND Diet author, Maggie Moon, RDN, will offer tips on how to best incorporate these vital nutrients into clients’ diets, who may have special needs such as shopping for seafood, costs/budget restraints, food prep, limited capacity to chew and other concerns.

This event is sponsored by the Seafood Nutrition Partnership NOTE: Anyone can attend the “live” webinar at no cost.
