¿Cuándo? Friday, October 1 @ 10am & 2pm (Vancouver)

Spanish for Community  is hosting a virtual information session for SPAN 301 students. The talk, led by Jennifer Lim and Matt Sacheli, will provide insights to BC Brain Wellness Program Language Project, and the discussion will follow a Q&A.

The BC Brain Wellness Program is a unique and interactive program establishing clinically relevant lifestyle approaches to complement medical treatment in the clinics at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health. By combining traditional clinical care with interventions that support healthier lifestyles, the program’s goal is to improve and sustain quality of life and function for its participants while pursuing rigorous research into lifestyle interventions for brain health. In addition, the program provides learning opportunities for medical professionals and the general public on brain wellness practices and enhanced educational experiences for UBC students from a wide range of fields.

Brain Wellness Beyond All Boundaries. The mission of the BC Brain Wellness Program is to leverage the collective power of clinical care, lifestyle programs, education, and research to design a comprehensive and integrated approach to brain wellness for people with chronic brain conditions, care partners and healthy agers.
