"Although I haven't experienced the effects of Alzheimer's or dementia through my own family, I have come across it through friends and have seen how it has affected the individual and the loved ones around them. Through witnessing the experiences that their families have had to go through I decided that I wanted to be a part of this research Centre to strengthen my knowledge on the human brain and to promote CHeBA by raising awareness about the importance of ageing brain research."
What does "Healthy Brains. Positive Ageing" mean to me?
Healthy Brains. Positive Ageing is a motto that people of all ages should respect. By challenging your body and adopting a healthier lifestyle at a younger age will be more beneficial to your mental and physical health at the latter stages of life. To pass on this knowledge to the youths of today and others that are willing to learn more of this illness can get the ball rolling in the community and maybe help people understand the effects and work toward finding a cure to neurocognitive disorders like Alzheimer's disease and dementia for future generations.
