As the science of brain health becomes more complex and the demand for evidence-based programming in brain fitness education grows, providers are increasingly pressed to deliver education and training that addresses brain fitness that meet the needs of their population. Brain health fairs offer a high-touch, experiential opportunity in brain wellness education for a large audience. This presentation will provide attendees with an understanding of the current science of brain health and the methodology behind the brain health fair concept. Modalities for delivery and efficacy of the program will be discussed.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Use a theoretical framework to better understand the current science of brain health
  • Identify the basis, planning and benefit of a large scale brain fitness event
  • See how the brain health fair model can be used in different settings and modalities
