Dr. Black is one of the world’s leading researchers in Alzheimer’s disease. She gave a comprehensive lecture on hypertension and brain health focusing on recognizing hypertension as public enemy #1 for the brain; understanding the “brain signature” of hypertension and choosing anti-hypertensives wisely – "what’s good for the heart may not be best for the brain".
