Every day one million Americans are absent from work because of stress-related disorders. And every 66 seconds someone in the United States is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The good news is there are clinically proven ways to reduce risk of developing dementia and
stress-related illnesses. Barbra Cohn spent a decade caring for her husband who died from younger-onset Alzheimer's disease. In addition to offering tips on maintaining brain health, she presents tools and techniques to help others feel happier, healthier, and more relaxed.
Barbra Cohn is a graduate of CU and longtime Boulder resident. She and her late husband Morris raised their two children, Ari and Hillary, here. Barbra writes about health and travel. She has written hundreds of articles for national and regional publications and health newsletters and is also an award-winning poet. Barbra currently writes a blog called thehealthycaregiverblog and is on the editorial board of Care Connections, a Boulder County newsletter for caregivers. After caring for her husband, who passed away from younger Alzheimer's disease, she wrote the book "Calmer Waters: The Caregiver's Journey Through Alzheimer's & Dementia" in order to help caregivers feel happier, healthier, less stressed, and better equipped to deal with feelings of guilt and grief. As president and owner of Cohn Writing Solutions, Barbra writes sales copy, newsletters and articles, and analyzes scientific studies for nutritional supplement companies. In addition to holding a Master’s degree in professional writing, she has a Certificate in Nutrition from the Bauman College of Nutrition and Culinary Arts.
