CBU to Engage Seniors in National Research on Dementia Prevention

CBU’s Centre of Excellence for Healthy Aging will soon open its office in downtown Sydney and will get straight to work to advance its research program this summer. In its inaugural project, the Centre will work with the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) as a partner in a national study designed to reduce risk factors for dementia by examining the impact of prevention. This study will target people aged 60-85 from across Canada to take part in a one-year study using Brain Health PRO (BHPro), an online program that offers interactive education and activities to empower older adults to improve their physical and mental health.
