The Orange County Vital Brain Aging Program is a grant-funded*, community-wide effort to raise education levels, encourage risk factor management, facilitate timely intervention against cognitive impairment, and to generally improve standards of care in the field of cognitive health.

The Vital Brain Aging Program includes:

For Physicians

  • An online information portal serving the Orange County's physicians
  • A series of CME seminars to update knowledge about managing cognitive vitality in primary care settings
  • A physician support program to implement the highest standards of care in cognitive assessment and treatment
  • Online resources for physicians managing patients with cognitive impairment
  • A Specialist Referral Panel to support community physicians with challenging patient cases

For the Public

  • An online information portal serving as the program's hub.
  • A series of educational seminars offered for free to the public.
  • Online resources for the public to identify, track, and reduce ADRD risk factors that threaten their cognitive health.
  • A community memory assessment and monitoring program for interested persons.
  • Full-time professional resources to counsel the public about ADRD risk reduction, early detection, diagnosis and treatment.
  • A referral service for directing the public to medical and community resources as needed.

* The Vital Brain Aging is made possible by a generous grant to the Hoag Neurosciences Institute from the UniHealth Foundation, a non-profit philanthropic organization whose mission is to support and facilitate activities that significantly improve the health and well being of individuals and communities within its service area.

A key element of the Orange County Vital Brain Aging Program is the coordination of community resources for optimal benefit. To that extent, we are working closely with these established organizations in the field.
