HHC – Alzheimer’s Disease and the Mind Diet: Nutrition, Cognition and Memory – Part 1

Join Richard Elbein, Chief Executive Officer, Alzheimer's Association, Houston and Southeast Chapter, and registered and licensed dietitian, for a discussion of the MIND Diet's development, its components, and the potential benefits of this promising new eating plan. According to a recent study published in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association, the food choices you make on a daily basis might reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease... perhaps significantly. The MIND Diet, developed by nutritional epidemiologists at Rush University Medical Center, is a hybrid of the Mediterranean diet and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. While both of those diets provide health benefits, the MIND Diet specifically includes foods and nutrients that research has shown to be good for the brain.
