Millennials & Brain Health: Be Brain Powerful
While Alzheimer's disease is most common among people aged 65 and older, research from AARP and UsAgainstAlzheimer's finds its effects are being felt more and more by young people. Our chief of staff and executive director of our LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's network, Jason Resendez, spoke with young people who are shaping the Alzheimer's movement through advocacy, research and storytelling: Veronica Segovia of AARP; Andres Martin, millennial Alzheimer's caregiver and advocate; Nihal Satyadev of the Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's; and Brooks Kenny of our WomenAgainstAlzheimer's network.
Brain Health Challenge
We also talked about ways to "Be Brain Powerful" by taking the UsAgainstAlzheimer's 30-day Brain Health Challenge.
We want young people to Be Brain Powerful. That's why UsAgainstAlzheimer's launched the Brain Health Challenge to give young people something they can do every day to take charge of their brain health. We've taken the six pillars of brain health from the Cleveland Clinic, plus one of our own--Make an Impact--to ensure that young people have things they can do to take care of their brains and take actions that will have a social impact for families touched by Alzheimer's.
