Brain health expert lectures at Cummings

Ever since she learned that her grandmother died of Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Tiffany Chow, Medical Director at the University of Southern California Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute, has been working to improve her own brain health, which includes maintaining a “cognitive reserve,” a set of conditions that can compensate for and minimize symptoms associated with dementia.

Learning about maintaining a healthy brain such as cognitive stimulation, physical activity and social engagement will be among the topics presented by Dr. Chow at the Cummings Centre May 23, 7 pm, 5700 Westbury Avenue.

$15 member / $22 non-member.

The program will be available to view through the Cummings Virtual Learning Program.

An online course on strategies to maximize cognitive reserve is available with access to video lectures by Dr. Chow, slide presentations, interactive activities, quizzes, and real-time feedback. The course can be completed at home. Cost: $60. To register: or call 514-343-3510.

    A lot of seniors are on fixed pensions. I would suggest a pay what you can option because $15.00 may be a burden, more so $22.00 for non-members.
