Join the UNC Nutrition Research Institute (NRI) at restaurant Forty Six for Appetite for Life with doctoral student Grant Canipe presenting Feed Your Brain: The Importance of Nutrition on Cognitive Aging.

Healthy aging is unfortunately often accompanied by uninvited changes in our cognitive function. Grant Canipe, a Doctoral Student in the NRI’s Cheatham Nutrition & Cognition Lab, will explore some of the factors that contribute to brain-related changes as we age. Attendees of all ages will learn about a few of the key mechanisms that make their brain “work” and how some factors, such as how our bodies process nutrients, affect cognitive function.

At Forty Six, enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with food and drink and be encouraged to participate with your questions and comments. It's Appetite for Life – with a twist!
