A Report From the SharpBrains Virtual Summit

On March 30th and 31st and April 1st, I attended a great conference called the SharpBrains Summit. This conference was attended by over 200 people virtually, from all over the world, as well as by many well known and leading professors and speakers in the field of brain fitness, cognitive training, and memory loss. A lot of interesting topics were covered. I myself presented the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation’s work, including our recent publication of articles in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, Consciousness and Cognition, Journal of Nuclear Medicine, and Psychiatry Research on how our innovative Kirtan Kriya meditation is able to affect positively the brain, improves memory, and enhances well being.

This is significant, because what was discussed was also the fact that aging baby boomers want is to create a lifetime of peak mental performance. In other words, they want to be able to maintain their cognitive function as they age, and not have their memory decline. Read the rest of this entry »

Making Strides in Alzheimer’s Prevention

Dear Friend,

We have much to be thankful for at the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation. We have made great strides in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

Looking back to the beginning of last year, we are proud to say we have touched the lives and educated an exponentially larger number of people than the previous year. As you know, education is likely the only weapon powerful enough to make a real difference in our health, and our brain health in particular – so we are absolutely thrilled to continue to spread the word. We also offered three Memory Screening events last year, and are planning to offer even more in 2011. Moreover, our innovative research has given us even more hope to continue on the path of an integrative medical approach to the prevention and treatment of memory loss.

We will soon be able to share with you the detailed results of the study that we sponsored at UCLA in Los Angeles, in conjunction with the Department of Psychiatry. But what I can tell you now is that the preliminary results are promising.  Of course, we are thrilled to be able to help, but the true help is what comes from you, our donors and supporters.

That’s what really makes a difference. Your support continues to give the ARPF the means to move forward and change people’s lives for the better, and I am deeply grateful to you for supporting our Mission. You are an important member of our ARPF family.  

Stay tuned, 2011 is going to be a great year and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Gratefully,

Dharma Sing Khalsa, M.D.
