National experts to headline ‘Food For Thought’

TERRE HAUTE — Two nationally renowned experts on brain health will be in Terre Haute on Sept. 13 and 14 to headline two days of programs for the general public and medical professional, dealing with issues of memory loss, dementia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

Dr. Neal Barnard will discuss brain heath in a free public lecture at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at Tilson Auditorium on the campus of Indiana State University. Barnard’s talk, this year’s first presentation in ISU’s Speakers Series, is free and open to the public. Tilson Auditorium is at 440 N. Sixth St.

On Sept. 14, Barnard will be joined by Dr. Laurie Mischley for an all-day conference, “Food for Thought — Evidence-Based Strategies for Better Brain Health.” It will take place at ISU’s University Hall, 401 N. Seventh St.

Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and is adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University. He is the author of “Power Foods for the Brain,” published this year, as well as a number of other books on the connection between nutrition and health.

His Sept. 13 lecture will address how simple diet changes can shield the brain from memory loss, stroke and Alzheimer’s. At the conclusion of the program Barnard will have a book signing in the entry room of Tilson Auditorium.

Subjects of his books include fighting diabetes, cancer and pain. He is also featured on public television in the program, “Protect Your Memory with Dr. Neal Barnard.”

On Sept. 14, Barnard will be the opening speaker at “Food for Thought.” He will speak on “Diabetes, Dementia and Dopamine” in the morning session.

In the afternoon, Mischley, an award-winning researcher in nutrition and neurological disorders with a focus on multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, will have two presentations.

The first is “Diet and Multiple Sclerosis: Does It Matter What I Eat?” followed by “Nutritional Strategies for Neuroprotection: Can Nutrition Slow Parkinson’s Disease Progression?”

Mischley is the author of “Natural Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease.” She is an award-winning researcher in nutrition and neurological disorders at Bastyr University and in part-time private practice at Seattle Integrative Medicine, where she specializes in orthomolecular therapies for neurological disorders.

Application for CME credit for medical professionals for the Sept. 14 program has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Six hours of CE credit will be awarded in nursing.

The conference is co-sponsored by Indiana State University, Union Hospital Medical Education and the Maple Center for Integrative Health. More information about the conference or to register, visit, or call 812-234-8733.
