Brain Health Academy: Physical Activity and Dementia

Physical inactivity is one of the known modifiable risk factors for dementia. People who are physically active are less likely to experience a decline in their mental function and have a lowered risk of developing dementia. This course moves from knowledge to application by providing actionable guidance and tools to help providers effectively address this opportunity with patients and families. The Brain Health Academy™ Series is a collaboration between AAPA and the Brain Health Academy™ | UsAgainstAlzheimer's.
