Dec. 7 Forum–Staying Sharp at Twin Cities Public Television

Staying Sharp: Nine Keys for a Youthful Brain through Modern Science and Ageless Wisdom

Using the new brain science to support resilience, vibrancy and connectedness throughout your life.


Whatever your current age, you are probably interested in this essential question: How do I best care for my brain as I age? This talk introduces the nine keys for a youthful brain from Staying Sharp, the new book by Drs. Henry Emmons and David Alter. Integrating ageless wisdom with modern neuroscience, Staying Sharp teaches you how to preserve the youthful vigor of your brain to support resilience, vibrancy, and connectedness. Learn to put these keys into practice and enliven the second half of your life.

Spacer You’re invited to learn more at the exclusive SHIFT Forum being held in the brand-new Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) Street Space in St. Paul on Monday, December 7.

Henry Emmons and David Alter, experts in the study and practice of brain science and resilience, will:

  • Describe practical actions you can to take to improve your personal resilience
  • Share ways for you to keep your mind curious, flexible and optimistic
  • Help you understand the critical role that purpose and authenticity play in the second half of your life

There will also be time for you to network with other midlifers to share your own personal success strategies, as well as learn more about SHIFT and how you can personally get involved in 2016.
