San Dementia Carer Support Group - Optimising Brain Health with Dr Ross Grant
This Friday the 5th of March at 10am the San is hosting a San Dementia Carer Support Group featuring a talk by Dr Ross Grant on Optimising Brain Health.
Dr Ross Grant is a Biochemical Pharmacologist in the School of Medical Sciences UNSW, and Head of the Australasian Research Institute. Dr Grant’s research focuses on characterizing, at the molecular level, how lifestyle and environment (e.g. emotional stress, diet and exercise) produce changes in the body’s biochemistry that lead toward either health or disease; including oxidative stress, inflammation and changes in metabolism. A practical goal of this research is identification of early subclinical disease (often linked to accelerated aging) enabling effective intervention before irreparable damage to tissue occurs.
The meeting will be held in the Sheutrium room, Jacaranda Lodge (located behind the hospital) and will run from 10am till 11am.
If you would like to join please RSVP via email to Marleta.Fong@sah.org.au or call 9487 9552 (Cognition Nurse at Sydney Adventist Hospital).
