During a candid conversation, the evening’s brain health experts discussed simple, yet vital, brain-boosting habits that can significantly improve cognitive health. Techniques ranging from a good night’s sleep to daily power walks are lifestyle interventions for building a more Alzheimer’s resistant brain. Moderating the conversation were Seth and Lauren, who infused humor into the discussion and shared changes they’ve made in their own lives to reduce their Alzheimer’s risk.
The evening wrapped up with a special performance from Boyz II Men who performed their classic hits “I’ll Make Love to You,” “End of the Road,” and “Motownphilly” as guests danced and sang along.
Special guests of the evening included Keegan-Michael Key, Questlove, Adrian Grenier, Ubah Hassan and more and everyone went home with goody bags curated to help them live a brain healthy life.
Earlier this week, Seth and Lauren Miller Rogen were in the nation’s capital attending the UsAgainstAlzheimers Summit: Uniting Communities for a Cure and Better Brain Health where they received the Bea Lerner Award for their work on behalf of people affected by Alzheimer’s.
