Presentation delivered by Alvaro Fernandez at the Vancouver JCC, on November 3rd, hosted by Eaton Arrowsmith.

Description: Just like the rest of our body, the brain requires care, attention and proper exercise. Yet, we often ignore this most vital organ because few know where to begin. Based on The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness: How to Optimize Brain Health and Performance at Any Age, named a Best Book by AARP, co-author Alvaro Fernandez will discuss exactly how to “use it or lose it,” offering a ground breaking new approach to harness neuroplasticity and improve brain health and performance at any age, from children to younger and older adults.
