But not all claims are backed by science. Helping people understand the best strategies to protect brain health is a critical public health response to Alzheimer’s that changes the future health of our communities. Join the Alzheimer’s Association during National Public Health Week on Thursday, April 5 from 2:00 to 3:00pm ET for an interactive webinar to learn what works to reduce risk for dementia and how state and local public health agencies can educate the public. Please register in advance.

Controlling hypertension and cutting smoking are among the interventions recommended by The Lancet International Commission on Dementia Prevention, Intervention and Care based on its evidence review and meta-analysis. Lon Schneider, MD, MS, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, will discuss the Commission’s lifespan-based model of dementia risk and interventions that may maximize cognition. Molly French, Alzheimer’s Association, will highlight the Association’s 2015 evidence review of modifiable risk factors and a new study of lifestyle interventions.

The webinar will also feature two health departments that have provided important leadership on moving the science of risk reduction into campaigns to educate the public. Speakers will include Michele James, South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control; Rachel Wexler, New Mexico Department of Health; and Gary Giron, Alzheimer’s Association New Mexico Chapter. Finally, webinar participants will learn about free communications resources that are available to help public health professionals integrate brain health messaging in health education campaigns.

Be sure to register online, mark your calendars for this National Public Health Week event, and forward this message to any interested colleagues.
