Keynote Speaker, Laura Baker, PhD


Dr. Laura Baker is Associate Professor of Gerontology & Geriatric Medicine, Neurology, and Social Sciences & Health Policy at Wake Forest School of Medicine. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Baker’s research has focused on identifying new ways to slow and prevent Alzheimer's disease in older adults.  In the last 15 years, her focus has been on lifestyle interventions that have the potential to restore health – not only for the body, but also for the brain. This approach is gaining popularity among scientists as one of our most promising interventions with the potential to prevent or slow disease.
