Dr. Paul Nussbaum, an international leader in brain health, recently spoke at The Glenridge on Palmer Ranch as part of The Art of Living Well: An Educational Series. The renowned neuropsychologist shared his personal mission to educate older adults on ways to maintain optimal mental capacity in his presentation titled “Brain Health Across the Lifespan.” Approximately 250 people attended the event, which was held at The Glenridge Performing Arts Center.
A licensed clinical neuropsychologist and adjunct professor of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Nussbaum has more than 25 years of experience treating dementia and related disorders. He has presented at the United Nations and National Press Club, and has published many peer-reviewed articles, books and chapters for the scientific community. His book, Save Your Brain, was named as one of the top five brain fitness books by AARP.
Nussbaum has also served in many leadership roles, including as the national director of brain health for Emeritus Assisted Living, the senior advisor on brain health and education for the International Center for Leadership in Education, and the chair of the Advisory Board for Alzheimer’s Prevention by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
“One of The Glenridge’s core values is to provide lifelong learning opportunities to keep our members’ minds engaged,” said Lisa Snyder, director of life planning at The Glenridge. “Dr. Nussbaum, literally, wrote the book on active aging, so we’re delighted to host him as part of our educational series, and show him his philosophies in action.”
