A message from Maria Shriver
Have you ever had a gut feeling about a decision? Or felt sick to your stomach over bad news? Experts say that’s because the gut is nearly as powerful a force as the brain, affecting your physical and mental health.
Join moderator Joan Lunden and leading experts in brain health on June 9, 2022 at noon ET to learn about the powerful gut-brain connection and how what you eat might affect anxiety and mood, increase the risk for Alzheimer’s, and more. Best of all, you’ll leave with practical advice on what you can do right now to protect your health in the long-term.
During this free, virtual event you’ll discover:
