May 12th is Healthy Brains Day!

Healthy Brains Day is May 12

Dine for better brain health this Friday, May 12, 2017. At participating Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas restaurants, you can improve your nutrition pillar score and overall brain health index (BHI) while contributing to brain health research.

HealthyBrains.org, launched on May 12th, 2015, is proudly celebrating its anniversary in partnership with the initiative’s sponsor, Caesars Entertainment and Caesars Foundation. Several Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas restaurants will feature “Healthy Brains” menu specials created with your brain health in mind. Better yet, a portion of the proceeds from these meals will go to Keep Memory Alive to help support brain health research at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
