Course Detail: LLPMIND - How to MIND Your Memory
Learn how to transition your eating pattern to the MIND approach. The MIND diet, which stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay, was developed by Martha Clare Morris, at Rush University Medical Center, through a study funded by the National Institute on Aging. MIND was ranked as the 4th overall best diet by US News and World Report last year, as well as, 4th best heart healthy and also 4th easiest to follow. With the help of Kathleen Ascansio MS, RDN and Kathy Kolasa PhD, RDN, from ECU Family Medicine you will assess your diet, play some food games to help your memory, and sample some tasty foods that fit. They found the MIND diet lowered Alzheimer's risk by about 35% for people who followed it moderately well and up to 53% for those who adhered to it rigorously. There will be time for your other nutrition questions as well.
