About the Author
Initially motivated by a report on the poor health of people within the mental health system, Karen Unger, M.S.W., Ed.D., began a four-year project to understand why so many of us have become unhealthy and what we can do about it. Using her three decades of university, research, and consulting experience, she has brought together the latest information on the underlying causes of our current state of health and on how we can vastly improve not only our general health, but our brain health as well. Brain Health for Life: Beyond Pills, Politics, and Popular Diets is the result of that project.
