Brain Health: Optimizing Life and Protecting Your Control Center

Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, MSN, CCM - Vice President, Clinical Operations, Advanced Plan for Health

Many of our clients offer incentives and programs to enhance employee and family health. However, too often these initiatives focus on nutrition, activity, rightsizing and common chronic health conditions like hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity and diabetes. Less attention is placed on brain health, even though our brains must work at peak performance for a lifetime to guide our bodily operations and functions, store our memories and be our control center.

This blog discusses what we can do to improve brain health which enables us to manage information, be logical, judge situations, keep our perspective and grow in wisdom as we experience life and work productively.
