Join us for an exploration of the intersections of nutrition and diet concerning cognitive health, as part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series.
Lisa Mosconi, Ph.D., is the associate director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic and director of the Women's Brain Initiative Research Program at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Her research is well-known regarding the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease in at-risk individuals using brain imaging techniques such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). She is passionately interested in how the risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease can be mitigated, if not prevented through a combination of appropriate medical care and lifestyle modifications involving diet and nutrition as well as physical and intellectual fitness. In 2018, Dr. Mosconi published Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power.
