Abstract / Description

Strengthening and maintaining brain health is important for people of all ages, particularly as we grow older and may experience changes in memory and thinking. Although this topic is a considerable concern for many older adults, there remains stigma around public dialogue, and accessible resources promoting brain health as we age are limited. A group of researchers, nurses, social workers, and students at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health are working to help older adults develop the knowledge and tools needed to protect their brain health and the know-how to connect with resources and extra support when needed.
