Dr Helena Popovic is a medical doctor, author, international speaker and one of Australia’s foremost authorities on how to maintain brain function. Her book In Search of My Father, which was showcased to a capacity audience at the 2013 Auckland Writers and Readers Festival, is an uplifting story of caring for her dementia-stricken father and taking charge of brain health.

Dr Popovic will visit New Zealand in March 2014 to feature in the Neurological Foundation’s Brain Awareness Week programme. In a series of three free public lectures, she will talk about things that we can all do to optimise our brain function and reduce the risk of dementia. As a doctor involved with the ongoing care of her father, she has applied the same principles to his everyday care. Dr Popovic says the three main things that we can all do are physical exercise, meaningful social connection and mental stimulation. She says "The latest research shows that participating in exercise and social stimulation greatly decreases the chance of getting dementia".
