Brain Fitness Class
Improve brain health and reduce the risk of dementia.
Washington State University and Pullman Regional Hospital Center for Learning and Innovation have partnered to offer group brain health interventions for middle-aged and older adults. The group offers education, training, and problem-solving to improve engagement in preventative health behaviors that will improve cognitive function. Participants will be assigned one of two intervention conditions or a wait-list condition.
Eligible individuals age 40 years and older must:
- Be willing to participate in a seven-week group intervention
- Be able to participate in cognitive testing
- Speak English fluently
- We will screen for eligibility
The goal of this study is to establish the efficacy of a brain health intervention to minimize cognitive decline and improve everyday functioning and quality of life for healthy older adults. Participants can receive up to $300 honorarium and a report about their cognitice performances.
- This seven-week program will begin on February 9th, 2018 until March 23, 2018.
- Classes will take place Friday evenings 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm and Saturday mornings 10:00 am - 12:00 noon.
