Last month, Global Health Aging looked at issues relating to the ineffectiveness of the influenza vaccine in the elderly. We also interviewed a 32-year-old filmmaker who is working on a project that explores the impact of diet and lifestyle on brain health. From the WHO European Region to a new documentary called Bread Head, let’s take a look at what happened this past month at Global Health Aging.
