“Brain Health matters”: create understanding around brain health at school

Eleonore Bayen, MD, Ph.D.
Association Robert Debré pour la Recherche Médicale
Paris, France

Dr. Bayen’s initiative “Brain Health Matters” is aimed at raising brain health awareness, improve knowledge and dementia prevention in young French students aged 10 years. The study objectives are to create scientific evidence-based messages about brain health in the form of a 10-minute video in French and to assess pre and post-video knowledge by conducting a survey. This information will help inform future strategies to promote the Brain Health Matters initiative. Strategies may address long-lasting effects around preventative life-style, behaviors around perceptions and dementia, and also contribute to lower brain health inequities.
