Brain Health

Brain health and wellness is just as real as our physical health and can impact our physical wellbeing. Yet 60 percent of adults and 50 percent of youth avoid treatment or don’t ask for help with brain health issues. Northeast Iowa Community College is committed to providing education and resources to improve the brain health of our communities. Through a partnership with Brain Health Now we are working to end the stigma surrounding “mental illness” and reframe the conversation toward brain health. Classes focused on brain health issues are available in face-to-face and online formats.

Brain Health Summit 

This premier event is held in partnership with Brain Health Now and features a variety of presenters who will share their insights and information about resources and strategies.
