Brain and mental health that drive Alzheimer’s prevention are top of mind worldwide as we work to redefine a new normal post pandemic. Recovering from the emotional anxiety and stress juggling work, family, and caregiving requires new strategies.

Dr. Suzuki’s Ted Talk on Exercise and the Brain has more than 14 million views and her latest book, “Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion” provides strategies to keep the brain healthy, use anxiety as a superpower and get a handle on the negative triggers.
