Do you have access to an aging pop­u­la­tion inter­est­ed in pilot test­ing some of the most promis­ing inno­va­tions in the aging and brain health sec­tor?

The Cana­di­an Cen­tre for Aging and Brain Health Inno­va­tion (CC-ABHI) invites inter­est­ed seniors’ care and oth­er health ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions to sub­mit an Expres­sion of Inter­est to act as a tri­al part­ner site for its Indus­try Inno­va­tion Part­ner­ship Pro­gram (i2p2).  Tri­al part­ners will have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to gain ear­ly access to new inno­v­a­tive solu­tions in the aging and brain health sec­tor for test­ing and val­i­da­tion.

Note: Tri­al part­ners must be a seniors’ care or oth­er health ser­vice orga­ni­za­tion in Cana­da, or a net­work part­ner of CC-ABHI in the Unit­ed States. At least one of the project par­tic­i­pants, either the appli­cant com­pa­ny or the tri­al part­ner site, must be locat­ed in Cana­da.

Pre­sen­ta­tion deliv­ered by Alvaro Fer­nan­dez at the Van­cou­ver JCC, on Novem­ber 3rd, host­ed by Eaton Arrow­smith.

Descrip­tion: Just like the rest of our body, the brain requires care, atten­tion and prop­er exer­cise. Yet, we often ignore this most vital organ because few know where to begin. Based on The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness: How to Opti­mize Brain Health and Per­for­mance at Any Age, named a Best Book by AARP, co-author Alvaro Fer­nan­dez will dis­cuss exact­ly how to “use it or lose it,” offer­ing a ground break­ing new approach to har­ness neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty and improve brain health and per­for­mance at any age, from chil­dren to younger and old­er adults.

Update: To thrive in the Knowledge Age, prioritize Deep work, avoid the Shallows, and Self-Quantify
