"AGING WELL: THE BRAIN – BODY CONNECTION"
AN ELDER ACADEMY AND INSTITUTE ON AGING AND LIFELONG HEALTH (IALH) EVENT
Several factors influence our ability to age well. Some of these, such as genetics, are not under our control. Others, such as exercising regularly and taking care of our mental health, are modifiable. This series will examine the impact of physical activity on brain health as well as the impact technology can play in understanding and modifying behaviours. The presenters are all affiliated with the Institute on Aging and Lifelong Health at the University of Victoria, a research centre committed to promoting and conducting basic and applied research to improve the health and quality of life of individuals across the life course.
