Lori La Bey is honored to have Dr. Miia Kivipelto, the Primary Investigator of the landmark FINGER Trial, in Sweden on the show. They discuss the FINGERs study which was the first large scale trial on multi-domain lifestyle based interventions which can reduce the risk of cognition impairment. Specifically they talk about the impact of a healthy diet, exercise, obesity, psycho-social engagement, sleep patterns, stress and loneliness. The FINGER study was published in 2015 and in 2017 expanded to the World Wide FINGERS study, where 15 countries have joined in to expand the trial. In addition to the trial Dr Kivipelto discusses the FINGERS Brain Health Institute.
