Virtually or in person!
Join Marc Roig, Ph.D. and The Memory Lab team on Thursday, January 26, EST, to learn about the latest advances in how our brain changes with healthy aging, and disease, and how novel interventions, including exercise, can be used to maintain a healthy brain and cognitive health.
This one-day symposium, will bring together expert international scientists in the area of research in cerebrovascular health, don't miss it!
