Brain health seminar for Bay
Celebrated neuroplasticity and healthy brain specialist Dr Helena Popovic will visit Napier on Sunday, April 3, for a once-only speaking appearance at 2pm at the Municipal Theatre.
Dr Popovic is an internationally acclaimed specialist on brain health and how people can improve their brains at any age. The Alzheimers Societies of Napier and Hastings are promoting the benefits of healthy brains by bringing Dr Popovic to speak to an expected large audience.
Alzheimers Napier and Alzheimers Hastings Managers, Tania Roebuck and Cheryl Robinson say the session, Boost your Brain and Defy Dementia, is an inspirational seminar about how people can take positive action and achieve extraordinary results. The Alzheimer societies say this is a seminar that anybody who is interested in the long-term health of their brain and general well-being as they age should go to.
Dr Popovic has proved that at any age we can sharpen thinking, improve concentration and memory and expand creativity. The emerging field of neuroplasticity, or how the brain can change its own structure and function according to what we do, how we behave and we think, is at the heart of Dr Popovic's work. Dr Popovic knows that helping people in these ways reduces the risk of developing depression, anxiety disorders and Alzheimers disease.
Education to help look after your brain is relevant to any age and it is part of the Alzheimers Societies' work to promote inclusion of brain health in an overall healthy lifestyle.
Dr Popovic is a popular business speaker in Australia and does a lot of work helping people improve their employees' performance.
Tickets for Dr Popovic's seminar are available at the Municipal Theatre, Napier or online through Ticketek.
