Portrait of Prof Tony Broe

Episode 16: Tony Broe explains how to grow a healthy brain from birth

NeuRA’s Prof Tony Broe is the lead author of the Koori Growing Old Well Study (KGOWS), that found the prevalence of dementia in older Aboriginal Australians is three times higher than in non-Indigenous Australians of the same age. Before this study, little was known about the rates of dementia in older Aboriginal Australians. Here he offers his unique perspective on how we can better grow our brains into old age.
