Sept. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — How do nutrition and exercise affect the brain? Is it possible to “exercise” the brain? What are the odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease, and can anything be done to prevent it? The public and health professionals will have an opportunity to learn the latest on brain health research and strategies for improving their brain fitness at Cross-Train Your Brain, a symposium hosted by Saint Luke’s South Hospital, Brookdale Senior Living, and the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City.

Featured keynote speakers include Marilyn Rymer, M.D., medical director of the nationally acclaimed Saint Luke’s Brain and Stroke Institute, who will discuss the mysteries of memory, and Kevin O’Neil, M.D., specialist in geriatrics and national medical director of Brookdale Senior Living, who will explain simple ways to keep the brain in shape.

Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational and interactive breakout sessions on topics important to brain health, including memory screenings, music therapy, energy and movement, sleep, nutrition, brain games, depression, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and neuro-targeted cognitive training. The event also will include an exhibitor fair and a complimentary light breakfast and boxed lunch. Limited seating is available; advance registration is requested.
