"The Healthy Brain" is Topic for June 23 Lyceum Series at Lone Star College-Montgomery

Published on: May 11, 2009

The Lone Star College-Montgomery Lyceum Speaker Series welcomes Dr. Stephen Kiraly, psychiatrist and author who is research-affiliated with the University of British Columbia in Canada. Dr. Kiraly will lecture on "The Healthy Brain" on Tuesday, June 23, at 12 p.m. in building B, room 102. A "meet and greet" reception with refreshments will be held at 11:30 a.m. in the lobby outside of the lecture hall in building B.

Dr. Kiraly often presents and does extended workshops for health care professionals, although this presentation is geared for the general public.

"It's about keeping our brains healthy," said Christie Taillon, sociology instructor at Lone Star College-Montgomery. "Also, it should be of particular interest to the older population, instructors and students, especially those in health occupation, social services and psychology careers."

He has done significant research on longevity and keeping the brain healthy. According to Dr. Kiraly, the fundamentals of brain health include the eight pillars: safety, nutrition, physical exercise, mental activity, sleep, stress, hormones, and treatment of disease.

"His talks are very well received," added Taillon. "We are very lucky to have him here."
