Hello Cascain and welcome to the APOE4 forum. I, too, watched some of "The Science of Prevention" (as you say, it can be tricky as the episodes come and go in 24 hours!) There have been quite a few "AD prevention" webinars in the past two years. That's great in terms of getting the word out that lifestyle choices can make a difference in how and when (if at all!) one may present with cognitive impairment.
In case you haven't bopped around the site too much, I wanted to direct you to some resources that are helpful. The primer
is a great place to start as it is written by a physician in laymen's terms. There is also a"How-To"
Guide that makes your journey around the site much more efficient. You may be interested in checking out the "Our Stories"
forum to share your own story and learn about fellow members -- these posts may sound like some of the people interviewed on all these AD prevention webinars! Finally, I've found the search function
to be an awesome way to research questions you may have as most likely, someone has asked the question before and there are several threads of information regarding that topic.
Again, welcome to the community and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments or additional recommendations!
