Speaker(s): Ngaire Hobbins, dietitian
Please note the change in venue from that previously advertised.
Ngaire Hobbins is an Australian dietitian, whose passion is in supporting older adults to enjoy vital, independent lives through nutrition. Whether they may be frail or fighting fit, living with dementia or learning about cognitive decline, Ngaire is translating the evidence base in nutrition, ageing and brain health into language the everyday person can use in a practical way.
Despite increasing worldwide interest in, and output from, research into nutrition and ageing in recent decades, very few individuals beyond their mid 60s understand their unique nutritional needs. As a result, many suffer otherwise avoidable physical and cognitive decline, robbing them of the chance to enjoy productive, independent lives in their later years and greatly adding to the cost of care and support of our elders.
Ngaire is passionate about sharing the evidence base in nutrition, ageing and brain health in the language of everyday people. She has written three books doing just that and presents widely to researchers, health professionals and everyday people alike.
Her books are: Eat To Cheat Ageing, Eat To Cheat Dementia and Better Brain Food.
There will be an opportunity to purchase a copy of Better Brain Food at the end of the session.
Location: Bowland auditorium, Berrick Saul building
