How Daily Habits Can Impact Brain Health

Did you brush your teeth this morning? Brushing our teeth is a habit we take for granted, but it is a simple daily activity that provides a lifetime of dental health. We don't have a similar daily activity designed to protect our brain’s health...but what if we did? Join us for this engaging talk where Dr. Qutub will introduce the latest advances in science and technology illustrating how daily behaviors influence the ability of our brain cells to repair and regenerate, enabling a future that optimizes brain health.
