Wednesday, May 31, 2023 12:00to12:45

Join us on May 31 at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia. 

Exercise and Cognitive Health 

Louis Bherer, PhD, is Full Professor at the Department of Medicine at the Université de Montréal and the Director of the Centre ÉPIC at the Montreal Heart Institute, where he holds the Mirella and Lino Saputo Chair in Cardiovascular Health and Prevention of Cognitive Disorders. He is also a researcher at the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal. Prof. Bherer’s research examines how cognitive health can be improved and maintained as we age. In particular, he is looking at the impact of physical fitness on cognitive vitality in late adulthood. 

Prof. Bherer will talk about how maintaining an active lifestyle can help prevent and delay cognitive decline in normal aging and dementia.  

This webcast will be available in English. 

McGill Cares is supported by the Amelia Saputo Community Outreach for Dementia Care.
