Diet, Longevity, and Cognition
Gary Fraser, MBChB, PhD
Dr. Fraser will review evidence that diet may affect cognitive decline, identify examples of populations that exhibit unusual longevity through a discussion of the ‘Blue Zone’ concept and the California Seventh-day Adventists, and examine the strengths and weaknesses of prospective observational studies.
For dietitians to earn continuing education units, this web cast must be viewed with and discussed among at least 2 other medical professionals.

The Learning Process:
Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 1 hour.
After completion of this web cast, participants should be able to discuss:
- How diet can affect cognitive decline
- Strengths and weaknesses of Seventh-Day Adventist studies
