Healthy Brains Day 2017: A Day to Remember

Healthy Brains Day 2017: A Day to RememberHealthyBrains.org and Caesars Entertainment, along with the helping hands of Caesars SMART HEROs commemorated its second anniversary across nine Caesars Entertainment hotels.

Some highlights include:

On Healthy Brains Day 2017, over 1800 people logged on to healthybrains.org and took a closer look at their lifestyle by taking the brain health checkup. Caesars employees enjoyed kale salads, fish, and lentil dishes for lunch. Many guests dining at Giada’s, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, Nook Cafe, and Burger Brasserie opted for the “Healthy Brains Day” menu special –  meals that not only improved their “Nutrition Pillar” but also contributed to the important brain research being conducted at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Brain Health.

Caesars Foundation, funded by Caesars Entertainment, originally partnered with Keep Memory Alive and Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health by providing a grant to develop the Healthy Brains Initiative.  May 12, 2015 marked the launch of the website and the day was proclaimed as “Healthy Brains Day” by Mayor Carolyn Goodman of Las Vegas.

In January of 2016, volunteer employees, deemed Caesars SMART HEROs, pitched in to help Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health educate the community about brain health and how to take the brain health checkup. Throughout 2017, these volunteers alongside the Healthy Brains team have worked together to amplify the message that a healthier lifestyle can lead to a healthier brain. These dynamic efforts will continue to aid Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health find vital volunteers needed in the discovery of new treatments for brain diseases.

Every day is Healthy Brains Day! Celebrate your awareness of brain health by re-taking the brain health checkup to see if your scores improve. And join us in our mission to discover new treatments for brain disorders by volunteering for a clinical trial by contacting us at healthybrains@ccf.org.
