Proactive Brain Health Critical as Americans' Life Expectancy Reaches All Time High
Date:9/22/2011

COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- life'sDHA™ and the National Center for Creative Aging (NCCA) are partnering for the second year for Beautiful Minds: Finding Your Lifelong Potential, a national health education campaign designed to empower Americans to develop and maintain healthy, beautiful minds by incorporating key lifestyle factors known as the four dimensions of brain health – diet and nutrition, physical health, mental health and social well-being.

Today the campaign unveiled the 2011 America's Brain Health Index, a state-by-state ranking of brain health that delivers data on how well Americans are incorporating the four dimensions into their daily lives and reveals the states where more action is needed. The campaign also introduced this year's "Beautiful Minds," 11 inspirational individuals from across the country who are fulfilling the four dimensions of brain health and achieving amazing things well into the second half of life.

"As the country experiences an unprecedented increase in life expectancy to 78 years — an increase of 30 years over the past century — the knowledge that we can influence brain health and cognition throughout adult life is more important than ever," said Dr. Majid Fotuhi, M.D., Ph.D., chairman of the Neurology Institute for Brain Health and Fitness, and assistant professor of neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "The largest aging population in history will experience the most longevity of any generation, which means taking action to improve our brain health should be a high priority on the health checklist for all of us."

Americans who want to join this growing brain-healthy community to find out where their state ranks in the America's Brain Health Index, meet this year's Beautiful Minds, and learn about simple steps that they can take to improve brain healt
