Nutrition and Dementia (French presentation)
Guylaine Ferland, PhD, is a professor of nutrition at Université de Montréal and a scientist at the Research Centre of the Montreal Heart Institute. Prof. Ferland conducts research on the general role of nutrition in cognitive health during aging. She is an expert in vitamin K metabolism and her team has made significant contributions to understanding the role of this nutrient in brain function and cognition.
She will speak about nutrition and dementia, including how to ensure proper nutrition for people living with dementia, and what we know about the benefits of doing so.
