Flex that Memory Muscle: Three Partners Promote Healthy Aging – December CARE Connections

How can researchers ensure that communities benefit from what’s known about healthy cognitive aging?

Read how a unique partnership involving the School of Nursing is doing just that, in the December issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter from the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“I knew I wanted to reach more people, but I wouldn’t be able to do it alone,” says Schmidt. “After hearing Andrea speak about health disparities in diverse communities, I asked if she would like to get involved. The results have been well beyond my expectations. The methods are well thought out and researched, and the activities help participants think about their brain health in new ways.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and Assistant Professor in Occupational Therapy Beth Fields, PhD, OTR/L, information about the CARE U train-the-trainer program to improve education for direct care staff, plus resources and news relevant to older adult health.
