This week: lifelong brain health, pancreas transplants and social justice

It’s never too late to maintain an active brain, says Patrick VanBeveren, the physical therapy supervisor at the The Centers at St. Camillus rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility.

VanBeveren stresses that physical activity, good nutrition and stress reduction are the “big three” for lifelong brain health. He describes simple ways to start -- taking short walks, eliminating any unhealthy food from your diet and setting aside a few minutes to relax on a regular basis.

Also this week: kidney and pancreas transplant options, and how food relates to social justice and nutrition.

Join us this Sunday, December 6 at 9 p.m. for HealthLink on Air.
