Food for Thought-Creating Healthy Brains Workshop

A good yarn and 'breaking bread' have been important cultural traditions for generations of Australians – however due to a number of complex factors, the opportunity to connect with others, has largely been lost.

The Food for Thought - Building Healthy Brains Together Workshop will provide enlightening conversations around the important interrelationship between healthy food and social connection with brain health; focussing on the prevention and management of cognitive decline, including dementia, memory loss and confusion, and mental health decline.

Research is clear that people can reduce their risk of brain and mental health decline (and other chronic diseases) by making key lifestyle choices, including adopting a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and being socially and mentally engaged.

In this dynamic Workshop you can -

• Listen and engage with dietitians, the clinical neuropsychologist from the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), and from the program coordinator of the Healthy Brain Ageing Clinic at the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Institute.
• View a practical cooking demonstration of simple and nutritious food, and then take home a package of recipes and other goodies, courtesy of USC Nutrition students.
• Learn and have fun with interactive activities throughout the morning.
• Enjoy a cuppa and delicious morning tea and connect with others.
