Digital Education Programming Presented by the
Center for Health & Wellbeing

Originally aired on August 17, 2020: You know exercise is good for your body, but did you know movement is also good for your brain? In this program, you’ll learn to improve your memory, creative skills and ability to cope by adding healthy moves to your life. As you move your body, your brain becomes stronger, you create new neural networks, stimulate new connectivity, strengthen existing blood vessels and repair damaged vessels. This leads to a sense of overall wellbeing and opens a world of health opportunities as we improve our cognitive health.
