Emeritus College Seminar: Staying SHAARP!

October 29 (Thursday) 10:30am – 12:00pmOnline Seminar:  Staying SHAARP! Evidence-Based Programs to Keep Our Brains Healthy with Dr. Lesley Ross, SmartLife Endowed Chair of Aging and Cognition, Associate Professor of Psychology and Associate Director of the Institute of Engaged Aging: Staying SHAARP! Dr. Lesley A. Ross will review current methods to maintain cognition, mobility and independence throughout older adulthood. Her research is tailored to our emeritus faculty and focuses on modifiable factors and interventions, such as brain games and exergames, that keep older adults independent and mobile.  Her research methodology includes measures of brain functioning, cognition, health, physical functioning, ecologically-valid active and passive mobile assessments, and everyday functioning.  The Emeritus College’s mission is to facilitate high quality engagement and involvement, both intellectually and socially.  As Dr. Ross shares her research with us, perhaps together we might identify new or alternative approaches for the Emeritus College to consider.  Join us for this exciting seminar and discussion.
