How can you keep your brain sharp at any age?

Drawing on the explosion of new evidence about brain health, Dr. Richard Isaacson, M.D., shows you how to protect, engage, and exercise your brain over time. It’s not just about living longer, but living better.

An award-winning professor of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medical College and a leading expert on brain health, Dr. Isaacson is also an exceptionally bright Alzheimer’s clinical specialist. He earned his medical degree at age 23, and what’s more, he has a personal stake in his research. As a preschooler, he had been rescued from drowning in a pool by his uncle—an episode that bonded them for life. Years later, when Dr. Isaacson was in high school and applying to medical programs, his uncle was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. From that moment forward, Dr. Isaacson dedicated himself to advancing brain science and helping people optimize their brain health.

Now, in this 12-lecture series, Dr. Isaacson aims to disseminate his findings to thoughtful people like you—who care about enhancing your quality of life and that of your loved ones.

You will reap a host of priceless benefits from this series if you follow Dr. Isaacson’s advice. A calm, clear, and light-hearted speaker, he highlights the importance of incremental, actionable steps for optimizing brain health.

Using science, you can take proactive steps today to keep your brain healthy and sharp.
