Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation.

  • Describe nutrients, food groups, and diet patterns that have a strong or moderate relationship with cognitive or motor function in older adults.
  • Review the potential role of unhealthy foods in attenuating the beneficial association of a healthy diet on the cognitive decline over time.
  • Identify foods associated with less Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease pathology in human brains.
