Healthy Brain Cards

The Tennessee Department of Health was awarded the CDC Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure grant. As part of the BOLD grant, the Office of Patient Advocacy is incorporating the Healthy Brain Initiative Roadmap to integrate best available evidence about brain health and cognitive decline risk factors into existing health communications and programs that promote health and chronic disease management for people across the lifespan. Healthy Brain rack cards were created for leaders to share within their respective communities. They adapt existing chronic disease risk reduction messages to include information about how these behaviors can also reduce the risk for cognitive decline. The target chronic disease topic areas include heart health (blood pressure control), diabetes, nutrition and physical activity. Questions? Contact the TDH Office of Patient Advocacy (click here).
