Event description
This talk will focus on lifestyle modifications to prevent Alzheimer's disease and provide steps toward healthy brain aging.

About this Event

This is the fifth lecture in a six-part series offered by the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center for the Sacramento Metropolitan Area and communities throughout Northern California. The theme of this year’s series is healthy brain aging and prevention.

This presentation, by Maria Carrillo, PhD, will discuss recent findings in Alzheimer's research addressing the current focus of lifestyle modifications on Alzheimer's disease prevention and provide steps to promote healthy brain aging.

As the chief science officer, Maria C. Carrillo, PhD, sets the strategic vision for the Alzheimer’s Association global research program. Under her leadership, the Association is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research – investing more than $440 million since 1982 – and an internationally recognized pioneer in convening the dementia science community.

Dr. Carrillo oversees the implementation of the Association’s portfolio of research initiatives, including the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference and the Research Roundtable. In addition, she leads the Association’s direct involvement in research by serving as a co-primary investigator for the Association funded and led U.S. Pointer study, a lifestyle intervention trial to prevent cognitive decline and dementia.

Dr. Carrillo earned her PhD from Northwestern University’s Institute for Neuroscience and completed a postdoctoral fellowship focused on Alzheimer’s brain imaging and risk factors at Rush University Medical Center.
