Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine and author, Dr. Gary Small is going against the widely accepted theory that Alzheimer's disease is an unavoidable consequence of aging. Dr. Small's argument is to be found in his book, The Alzheimer's Prevention Program. The core elements in his seven day plan include memory training, food that promotes a healthy brain, the importance of aerobic and strength exercise, managing stress and maintaining strong emotional connections.

 Dr. Gary Small's book The Alzheimer's Prevention Program:  Keep Your Brain Healthy for the Rest of Your Life is from Workman Publishing, New York. His research is supported by the National Institutes of Health and Scientific American has named him one of the world's leading innovators in science and technology.
