Balance, Falls and Brain Health
July 17 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PMCost: Free
Join Mind University for a free brain health workshop on balance, falls and brain health. We’ll discuss the latest research on the connection between balance and brain health, including the complex sensory systems our brain uses to help us keep our balance. We’ll review risk factors for falls and give actionable steps for simple exercises to challenge and maintain our balance so that we may build movement confidence as we age.
