3rd Annual Brain Games on November 10

On Saturday, November 10 between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, St. John’s Institute for Cognitive Health will co-host the third annual Brain Game Challenge with the Senior Center of Jackson Hole, Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation and Teton County Library. Community members 15 years and older are invited to the Senior Center of Jackson Hole (830 E. Hansen St.) for fun and diverse “brain game” activities, including Tai Chi, trivia, word games, singing, language skills and movement -- all intended to exercise the brain! Participants will have the opportunity to create a Brain Fitness Plan with life coach Marsha Holden.

“We are so pleased to host Brain Games 2012” says Martha Stearn, MD of the Institute for Cognitive Health. “This event gets more popular and more engaging each year. We’re looking forward to another community gathering full of intergenerational fun.” Suggested donation of $7 at the door covers lunch, refreshments and supplies. For more information, please call 307 733 7300.

Sponsored by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA), Brain Games takes place at locations all over the country. The event is based on the concept that flexing and stretching your brain, just like flexing and stretching other parts of your body, is critical for successful aging. Brain Games is one of many ongoing Institute for Cognitive Health and AFA efforts to educate the public about successful aging and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.
