Title: Improve Your Brain Health with Brain Foods
The Highland Capital Management Lecture
If you’ve read about how omega-3 fats can benefit brain health or how the gut microbiome impacts depression, you were actually reading about nutritional psychiatry. This emerging area of attention seeks to understand how our food impacts our brain health: when we make better food choices, we are eating to build a better brain. Dr. Drew Ramsey will discuss how your brain’s energy is derived from the food you eat.
Dr. Ramsey is a pioneer in the field of Nutritional Psychiatry, as well as an author and a farmer. He is a clear voice in the mental health conversation and one of psychiatry’s leading proponents of using nutritional interventions. He founded the Brain Food Clinic in New York City, which incorporates evidence-based nutrition and integrative psychiatry treatments with psychotherapy, coaching, and responsible medication management. Using the latest in brain science, nutrition and mental health research, as well as an array of delicious food, the clinic helps people live joyful, fulfilled lives. Dr. Ramsey is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
