The Arizona Center on Aging's Healthy Brain Research Network (HBRN) Collaboring Center
One of five nationally collaborating centers supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal is promoting cognitive health and addressing the growing number of older Americans living with cognitive impairment. This project emphasizes community based participatory research in cognitive aging, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's and related dementias.
Network activities will build on the mission of CDC’s Healthy Brain Research Network to:
- Better understand attitudes and perceived changes in cognitive functioning over time through public health surveillance.
- Build a strong evidence base for communication (e.g., messaging) and programmatic interventions to improve or maintain cognitive function.
- Translate that evidence base into effective public health programs and practices in states and communities.
