The speakers will lead you on a journey of discovery as they discuss current research into a variety of health topics including dementia, strokes, and the effects of alcohol and exercise on the brain.

Also being screened is the award winning documentary ‘Age of Champions’. An uplifting story of five competitors who sprint, leap and swim for gold at the US National Senior Olympics. If you have ever considered your sporting achievements as something in your past you should watch this film.
