You and Your Brain: A Collaboration of HealthyWomen, Prevention, and the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement at the Cleveland Clinic

A message from Maria Shriver

Have you ever had a gut feeling about a decision? Or did you feel sick to your stomach from the bad news? Experts say that’s because your gut is almost as powerful a force as your brain, and it affects your physical and mental health.

Join moderator Joan Lunden and leading brain health experts on June 9, 2022 at noon ET to learn about the powerful gut-brain connection and how what you eat can affect anxiety and mood, increase your risk of Alzheimer’s and more. Best of all, you’ll walk away with practical advice on what you can do right now to protect your long-term health.

During this free virtual event, you will discover:

  • Why experts call the gut the “second brain”
  • How your digestion and intestinal problems can affect your daily life
  • What type of diet is best for brain health
  • What foods improve your mood

Register today for the You and Your Brain: The Gut-Brain Connection webinar!
