Walter Allen Memorial Community Lecture – Brain Street, USA: How Community Environments Shape Brain Health

June 13, 2019 @ 2:00 pm

Andrea Rosso, PhD, MPH Andrea leads the Brain, Environment, Aging, and Mobility (BEAM) lab. Her research aims to improve mobility of older adults, reducing disability and keeping individuals in their communities. She uses an inter-disciplinary approach to understand how aging, and particularly brain aging, affects an individual’s ability to navigate the complex community environments that we experience every day and how community environments shape brain aging. Her research combines advanced methodologies in neuroimaging , gait analysis, neighborhood assessment, and longitudinal epidemiology to determine mechanisms of mobility decline and inform future intervention research. This talk will explain how daily exposures in our environments may influence how our brains age.
