Healthy Places Research Group Meeting
Cognitive Empowerment Program's Innovation Accelerator
Please join us on Tuesday, February 4 for a presentation by Jennifer R. DuBose, the Associate Director of the SimTigrate Design Lab and a Principal Research Associate with the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
This presentation will provide an introduction to the Cognitive Empowerment Program with an emphasis on the activities taking place in the Innovation Accelerator. Mild cognitive impairment (MCI), often a precursor to Alzheimer's disease, affects up to 20 percent of American adults older than 65, and nearly a third of them will develop Alzheimer's disease within five years. Georgia Tech is collaborating with Emory Brain Health on the Cognitive Empowerment Program in Executive Park, funded by the Cox Foundation. This is a novel living laboratory focused on delivering therapeutic programs that leverage the technology and the built environment. An ongoing part of the program is the Innovation Accelerator where the members work with researchers and students to develop solutions for everyday problems.
