Nutrition for Maximizing Brain & Heart Health – Monday at Woodmont Country Club

Most people know that nutrition is crucial for heart health, even if the specifics are sometimes a bit confusing. But very few people realize just how important nutrition is for brain health, and that the two intersect quite nicely.

My clients regularly ask me: Do certain foods affect my brain? My answer: Yes! What you eat profoundly affects the brain, memory, and mental function. And – lucky for us – scientific research confirms brain and heart health benefit from similar foods, nutrients and behaviors (Read my article, “Maximizing Brain Health Do’s and Don’ts). Katherine will discuss state-of-the-art knowledge of how you can maximize your brain and heart health through nutrition at the First Annual “Go Red For Women Wellness Symposium” at the Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Maryland on Monday, May 29.

Go Red For Women® celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.

The American Heart Association cordially invites you to the
First Annual Go Red for Women Wellness Symposium
in conjunction with the 29th Annual Golf Tournament

Monday, April 29, 2013

 Explore and celebrate your health and well-being at the First Annual Go Red for Women’s Wellness Symposium. Join other strong women from across DC, Maryland and Virginia for a powerful, meaningful day to join forces, raise funds for the American Heart Association, and commit to ending heat disease and stroke – the number one killer of women.

  • Can you let me know when next you will have another “brain” seminar; we missed this one and my husband has short-term memory and cognitive issues from stroke. We are interested in your subject matter. Gail
