This webinar is based on a workshop that was presented at the 2016 Aging in America Conference.

The topics of brain health and wellness are foremost in today’s healthcare arena; recent research reveals that middle-age and older adults feel it is important to maintain or improve their brain health. This presentation provides an overview of how a community-based, Center 4 Brain Health, was created, and highlights the Center’s programs and services that complement the goals of national and global brain health initiatives. The Center’s current efforts focus on raising awareness about brain health and wellness, providing educational information, and helping people translate current scientific research to enhance their lives and, ultimately, strengthen their brain health.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Become familiar with one current brain health and wellness initiative at the national and-or global levels;
  • Identify two reasons why lifelong brain health is important for adults and older adults; and,
  • State two innovative ways to support brain health and wellness for adults and older adults.
