For most, dealing with brain diseases or injuries is the most difficult of all healthcare challenges. And these conditions are the fastest growing cause of disability and death in the U.S. – most prominently adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Psychiatric Syndromes. The emotional toll on families with brain-impaired loved ones is greater than all other medical illnesses combined. With 10,000 seniors turning 65 daily for the next 15 years, we face unprecedented demands to already strained brain diseases of aging resources. Thus, the need has never been greater for a scientific brain wellness leadership team that is both qualified and committed to bring BPE to the masses as quickly as possible. Meet the faces that are behind Brain In Play International and Brain In Play Foundation.
