Two FREE Virtual Healthy Lifestyle Programs from the Alzheimer’s Association
The start of a new year often means a commitment to a healthier lifestyle in the hopes of better health outcomes. The Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter is offering two free virtual programs to learn about how healthy lifestyles may reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias:
Healthy Living for Your Brain & Body
