Session 19 | On the Sunny Side: The Impact of Nutrition on Mental Health in Residents - CANCELED

Session Summary

*This session has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Mental health among seniors living in a congregate setting has long been a topic of interest, never more than while navigating the isolation, stress and boredom brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will discuss the role that nutrition can play in maintaining or improving the mental health status of older adults via the gut-brain axis, nutrient abundance and enjoyment of meals.
