Once assumed to be unpreventable, risk of Alzheimer’s disease is influenced by many factors, both

genetic and non-genetic. And, we continue to learn about these factors as more and more research around the world is reported. During this presentation, you will learn about the ongoing quest of researchers and scientists to understand these modifiable risk factors and learn what the research says regarding the effect of lifestyle modifications on risk.
