We often think of physical activity contributing only to physical fitness – but there is strong evidence to support that movement benefits, protects, and sustains our cognitive fitness as well. Movement in all forms has profound impacts on our brains across our lifespan, from improving mental health to reducing risk of dementia, and more.
Join our panel of advocates, community leaders, and researchers to discover how only a few moments of movement each day is an investment to promote brain health for years to come.
