UsAgainstAlzheimer’s and the Brain Health Academy

I learned today about a new intitiative named the Brain Health Academy (BHA) designed to “equip health care providers and wellness professionals with the knowledge and resources to help people reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s and related dementias,” according to an article from HomeCare Magazine.

This is important to draw more attention to the growing need for Alzheimer’s education and prevention. The BHA will launch on June 15th, and there are six online modules that last one hour. Presenters are from the American Heart Association, UPenn School of Nursing, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, Mayo Clinic, Humana, and more.

Topics covered will be Inequities in Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias, Nurition and Dementia, Sleep and Dementia, Social Isolation, Lonliness and Dementia, Physical Activity and Dementia, and Hypertension and Dementia.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are as excited as I am for more attention directed at Alzheimer’s prevention and the need for education and quality care.

Until next time! Lori @ DementiaDaughter.
