In This Session
While exercise in good for the body, Dr. John J. Ratey, MD, argues it is more important for the brain, especially when it comes to students in the classroom. Join us for our community’s next webinar when Dr. Ratey, an internationally recognized expert in the brain-exercise connection, will demonstrate how we can raise test scores, lower behavioral problems, and help the overall well-being of today’s students with fitness-based physical education. He will cite both scientific studies and real world examples during this interactive session. Dr. Ratey will focus on SPARK, a groundbreaking exploration of the connection between exercise and the brain’s performance that shows how even moderate exercise will supercharge mental circuits to beat stress, sharpen thinking, enhance memory, and much more. Hear about his world-wide mission to re-engineer schools, corporations, and individual lifestyle practices by incorporating exercise to achieve peak performance and optimum mental health.
