The KU Alzheimer's Disease Center is proud to offer our Lifestyle Empowerment for Alzheimer's Prevention (LEAP!) program. This innovative program translates the latest Alzheimer's disease prevention research into actionable recommendations for everyday life. Our classes include:

  • Brain Health Bootcamp - a six-week course on the fundamentals of a brain-healthy lifestyle (offered at the KU Clinical Research Center, Emporia Fitness, and a variety of community organizations and senior living centers)
  • LEAP! Workshops - individual classes on specific Alzheimer's prevention topics
  • LEAP! in Action - fitness classes with an emphasis on brain-healthy exercise, currently offered in Emporia, KS

The Brain Health Bootcamp course also includes the LEAP! Brainpower Blueprint, a helpful Alzheimer's prevention manual written by the KU ADC.

We are expanding this program to reach more people and have some exciting announcements coming later in 2019. If you'd like to be kept up-to-date on new LEAP! opportunities, please join our email list by clicking here.
