Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series
If You Could See the Future, What Would You Have for Dinner?

"The role of genetics in Alzheimer's, and dementia in general, is not as major as we previously thought. While some patients carry aggressive genetic mutations that cause dementia, for the vast majority of the population, risk is influenced by a variety of medical and lifestyle factors - including a person's diet." from Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power by Dr. Lisa Mosconi

Join us for an exploration of the intersections of nutrition and diet on cognitive health during the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series at the the Grand Central Branch of the New York Public Library.

When: Tuesday, December 4th, 2018, 6 pm

Where: Grand Central Library, 135 E. 46th ST

The M Event

Women’s Health in Midlife is The Worst-Kept Secret in the World. Menopause happens to half the population, yet no one talks about it. Which means a whole lot of women get blindsided by sudden, often dramatic changes when they hit their 40s and 50s.

The M Event (onsite and live-stream) will tackle the physical and emotional health changes most midlife women go through but no one talks about. You’ll hear licensed health care professionals talk through what’s normal and what’s not and how you can take actions to care for yourself in ways you never imagined.

When: November 10, 2018, 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM PST

Where: Bastyr University, 14500 Juanita Drive Northeast, Kenmore, WA 98028
