One Step at a Time: Building Resilience to Alzheimer’s Disease through Physical Activity

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

Barring effective treatments, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is poised to become a public health epidemic in the near future. Accordingly, the identification of potential pathways for curbing the progression of the underlying disease process and delaying the onset of symptoms has become a public health imperative. In this lecture, we will present evidence – from both observational and intervention studies – that lifestyle adaptations, specifically physical activity and aerobic fitness, favorably influence AD biomarker profile and cognitive trajectory against the constraints imposed by advancing age and APOE4 genotype, the two best-established risk factors for AD.
