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.
