She will be addressing participants of the Brain Longevity Therapy Training (BLTT), a research-based certification program on yoga and integrative therapies for brain health and healthy aging. ARPF's mission for over two decades has been to help promote prevention strategies in the treatment and clinical management of AD. Its founder, Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D. reports that "it is very possible (to prevent AD), but leaders in the health and wellness field must take advantage of this knowledge and put it to use."
The BLTT is aimed at giving attendees the expertise and tools to thwart the AD epidemic by exploring in great depth the 4 Pillars of Alzheimer's Prevention®, including the latest in neuroscience, telomeres, and yoga meditation applications to enhance brain health. Attendees will become equipped with practical tools that they can immediately put to use to enhance careers, teachings, practices, and patients' lives.
