    MindAlert Awards 2007

    Fun article. Some quotes:

    • On Friday, the program was honored along with two others — the Florida-based Everyday Memory Clinic and The Intergenerational School in Ohio — by the American Society on Aging and the MetLife Foundation for their creative ways to engage older minds. The joint conference of the ASA and the National Council on Aging is underway in Chicago this week.

    • The MindAlert Awards, now in their seventh year, recognize innovative approaches to helping older adults maintain their cognitive fitness. But in recent years the concept has garnered more acceptance, as growing evidence suggests that exercises aimed at keeping the brain active have an effect on an aging mind’s ability to think and remember.

    • In addition to a $1,500 gift, each winner will become part of the national MetLife MindAlert Trainers’ Bureau, which allows current and previous MindAlert winners to take their community-based programs into other regions around the country, said Dominick Albano, spokesman for the ASA. See the ASA Web site for a list of previous winners.
