Virtual Brain Health Center is celebrating their one-year anniversary this October with a 5-day event celebrating Active Aging Week from October 4-8. The Virtual Brain Health Center is an initiative by Dr. Krystal Culler and LeAnne Stuver, M.Ed., BSN, with a sole mission to provide practical solutions introduced into our daily routine, enabling us to take control of our brain wellness today for a healthier tomorrow.
Focused on multiple dimensions of wellness, 15 free virtual programs will be offered to adults, families, communities, and providers. The event is free for all, and everybody is welcome to join, including groups. The live-streamed sessions will be offered from Monday to Friday, three times per day at 11 am, 2 pm, and 7 pm EST.
Active Aging week is the ideal platform to promote brain health. The International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) began the first Active Aging Week in 2003. This week is meant to celebrate how positive the process of aging can truly be. Active Aging Week encourages adults over the age of 50 to take advantage of all that life has to offer. The goal of this week is to promote wellness initiatives and to get bodies up and moving.
A 30-minute physical activity at 11 am to get the blood flow moving to the brain and body, an hour-long cognitive engagement class with industry experts on a variety of brain wellness topics at 2 pm, and a 45-minute social based personal well-being class at 7pm designed to promote a restful brain. The event is open to both individuals and groups for engagement with a professional line-up of instructors including the leadership of the Virtual Brain Health Center, Dr. Krystal L. Culler, DBH, MA & LeAnne Stuver, M.Ed., BSN; Music, Movement, & Memory; Rigert Mind Body Arts; Simply Virtual Inc.; Wellness Grove; The Purpose Equation; Magda Kaczmarska; Will Gather; Mental Nourish; Cardiomelon; Vestibular Training Services LLC; Simply Virtual Studio; Fred Kienle; and Ted Smith.
The Virtual Brain Health Center revealed its new website this August accompanied with a free app as well. The website will have a monthly Wellness Wednesday blog on the second Wednesday of each month and much more about brain wellness and health. The team at The Virtual Brain Health Center has been working behind the scenes, finding low-cost and practical solutions to share brain health and wellness with the community and the new website and app were launched to share those solutions with more individuals, caregivers, families, communities, and providers.
With the launch of new website and app, individuals can now easily attend live brain health classes, book virtual healthy brain check-ups, and request personalized resource meetings with the click of a button. The Virtual Brain Health Center’s newly launched app is available for FREE download at the App Store and Google Play.
