Hussein Yassine: Your Questions Answered About Diet and Brain Health

May 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT


While Alzheimer’s disease isn’t curable, research shows it may be preventable or postponable by controlling lifestyle factors like diet. Yet with so many types of diets emerging, it’s hard to know what’s a fad and what lifestyle changes can actually support brain health.

On Friday, May 17th, at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET USC’s Dr. Hussein Yassine joins Being Patient live talks to answer questions about how diet affects brain health. 

Yassine is an associate professor at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. His research is focused on the intersection of neurology and nutritional sciences. At Yassine Lab, his team studies how lipids — particularly omega-3 fatty acids — affect Alzheimer’s disease. He’s also the director of USC Center for Personalized Brain Health, launched in 2023 to build research on the APOE gene and the role of fatty acids in the brain to advance personalized health to cut Alzheimer’s risk.

RSVP to this live talk to learn more about how diet impacts the brain, and, ultimately, Alzheimer’s risk.
