BrainMasters and Brain Awareness Week


Brain Awareness Week 2011 is almost here-March 14-20, 2011.  BrainMasters is proud to be a partner with  The Dana Foundation in support of BAW.  What are you doing that week? Here is a sample of one of our scheduled events around Atlanta.

BrainMasters will have an exhibit and open house at Savannah Court Assisted Living,  Marietta, Georgia. During this time, Heidi Lipman, M.Ed.,CCC-SLP and Wendy Alexander, M.Ed.,CCC-SLP the co-founders and owners of BrainMasters will conduct an educational and hands on interactive workshop focusing on brain health, brain fitness, and brain maintenance. Our event is primarily targeted for adults with a concentration on assisted living residents, family members, friends, caregivers, staff, and professionals in the area. The event is of course open to the public, and all are invited to join us.

With more and more attention focusing on anti-aging, healthy living, and aging in place it is more important than ever to learn about the brain and brain health. This is especially true as our population continues to age and Alzheimer’s Disease is on the rise with someone currently developing it every 70 seconds and by the year 2050 it will be every 33 seconds. These statistics are  frightening to say the least!  So, make it a goal to increase your knowledge of the brain, exercise your brain, exercise your body, eat a healthy diet, and be positive! These all contribute to healthy aging and longevity. Isn’t that what we all want?
