CANCELLED - Brentwood - Thursday, March 12th at 6:30 pm - Dr. Lisa Mosconi in conversation with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee discusses and signs "The XX Brain" and Feel Better, Live More podcast live recording
Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. As of now there are no current plans to reschedule them at a later date.
Join us on Thursday, March 12th at 6:30 pm as we welcome Dr. Lisa Mosconi to the store to discuss and sign The XX Brain: The Groundbreaking Science Empowering Women to Maximize Cognitive Health and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease! Joining her in conversation will be fellow author Dr. Rangan Chatterjee.
This event will also be a live recording of an episode of the Feel Better, Live More podcast.
Until now, medical research has focused on “bikini medicine,” assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. Women -- deemed too difficult to observe given the way estrogen fluctuates their cycle -- have been largely ignored. Enter Dr. Lisa Mosconi, Director of the Women’s Brain Initiative at Weill Cornell, who confronts this crisis by making female brain health her life’s work. As the author of The XX Brain, she writes the first book to address cognitive enhancement and Alzheimer's prevention specifically in women and frames brain health as an essential component of Women’s Health. She empowers women with a revolutionary, scientifically-proven plan to maximize cognitive health and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease affects twice as many women as men, even adjusting for their longer lifespans. This disease is a major threat to women’s health. Less than 1 percent of Alzheimer’s cases are the result of genetic mutations. Except for those rare cases (or something to this effect), DNA won’t impact a woman’s likelihood of developing dementia nearly as much as her hormonal status, lifestyle, and medical report card, but this information is widely unknown. The XX Brain provides the information women have been lacking. Dr. Mosconi introduces tactics to protect the female brain, including tips for stress reduction, restful sleep, and a specific diet proven to work for women.
As the reverberations of the #MeToo movement continue to shake America, women’s health is the final frontier. This book is at the forefront of a change we need: information about the way the female brain works, so women can mitigate the risks of cognitive decline. With Dr. Mosconi’s personal story of her grandmother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s, paradigm-shifting research, and actionable solutions to a prevalent disease, she inspires women to enhance mental acuity, memory, and brain functionality to reduce their risk of dementia and optimize their brain power.
Dr. Lisa Mosconi, PhD, is the director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she serves as an associate professor of neuroscience in neurology and radiology. In addition, she is an adjunct faculty member at the NYU Department of Psychiatry and the author of Brain Food.
Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential doctors in the UK and wants to change how medicine will be practiced for years to come. He is the author of How to Make Disease Disappear and The Stress Solution -- which tackles what the WHO call the health epidemic of our time -- and is the host of the Feel Better, Live More podcast. Dr.Chatterjee’s mission is to help 100 million people feel fantastic by restoring them to optimal health.
