The pandemic has been especially difficult for people with dementia and those who care for them, and affects even those who have not contracted Covid. We will discuss how the disease can impact our thinking and be a risk factor for dementia. As importantly, we will share ways to keep our brains healthy as we move forward in a post-Covid world. Join us for this engaging talk and bring your curiosity and your questions with you.
Meeting information and reminders will be sent via email. You will receive a zoom link upon registration and two days prior to the event.

Lisa Feiner, MBA, M.Ed. NBC-HWC
Lisa is a certified health and wellness coach, and co-founder and Chair of Sharp Again Naturally. Over the past 18 years, she has worked with clients with a wide range of health issues. During the same period, Lisa has been a board member of The New Jewish Home, a nonprofit nursing and healthcare system. In 2011, when she first learned about individuals diagnosed with dementia who recovered their cognition, it made sense that the rise in Alzheimer’s disease reflected changes in diet, lifestyle and the environment. It was only after SAN was founded that Lisa’s own father was diagnosed with Lewy Body dementia. Lisa writes and speaks about the causes of memory loss and how we can all take better care of our bodies and minds to live life well into old age.
