A Conversation with Brain Experts Andrew Budson, MD and Annie Fenn, MD at Hummingbird Books
Wed, April 19 | 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Did you know that beets boost blood flow to the brain? Or that saffron can provide memory enhancing therapy? Maybe you’ve learned that chewing your greens is better than drinking them but opting for a smoothie is healthier than a green juice. Join us at Hummingbird Books for an Evening Conversation with Brain Experts – Annie Fenn, MD and Andrew Budson, MD.
The program will include a 30-minute moderated conversation and then open for a 20-minute question and answer period. Ticket options include registration, plus a copy of either “Brain Health Kitchen: Preventing Alzheimer’s Through Food” by Annie Fenn, MD or “Why We Forget and How To Remember Better” by Andrew Budson, MD and Elizabeth Kensinger, MD, or simply registration.
“This topic of brain health is so important, said Wendy Dodson, owner of Hummingbird Books. “We are thrilled to welcome experts in the field who have written exceptional books on the matter. Whether people are concerned about themselves or a loved one, education is essential. Dr. Andrew Budson and Dr. Annie Fenn will provide actionable information and guidance for brain health.”
About Annie Fenn, MD and “Brain Health Kitchen: Preventing Alzheimer’s Through Food”
Fenn founded the Brain Health Kitchen, the only cooking school of its kind focused exclusively on brain health and helping people prevent cognitive decline through food and lifestyle. From berries and leafy greens to olive oils and brain-healthy pantry heroes, The Brain Health Kitchen is divided into eleven sections of achievable recipes, cooking techniques, science bites, shopping secrets, and flavor fits to help elevate your cooking techniques and increase cognitive longevity. As Fenn outlines, “Unlike many health-centric cookbooks, my approach isn’t about following a strict plan… brain-healthy eating is about making food choices that will have staying power for the rest of your life. At its core, brain-healthy eating is a lifestyle founded on a set of attitudes about aging with intention and grace.”
