This week, the campaign ‘We are the medicine’, which focuses on dementia and lifestyle, started in Nieuwegein. Dementia is a growing health problem in our society. The starting point of the campaign is that people themselves can do a lot to keep their brains healthy. A healthy and active lifestyle is very important. Research shows that 30 percent of dementia cases can be prevented through healthy living. Alderman Marieke Schouten and director of the GGDrU Carola Koper kicked off the campaign. The three most important tips for preventing dementia are: stay curious, eat healthy and exercise regularly. The campaign will run until the end of November in the entire Utrecht region.
