Brain health refers to how well a person’s brain functions to support everyday activities to function in society. This webinar will discuss the intersection between brain health and dementia and resources the Administration for Community Living (ACL) has developed to help raise awareness around the importance of brain health. In addition, participants will learn from two ACL dementia grantees, Summit County Public Health in Ohio and AltaMed Health Services Corporation in California, about how and why they chose to provide education on brain health in their communities and healthcare systems. Each grantee will share information about the implementation and outcomes of their brain health efforts to date.
