JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska --
The 176 WG has been chosen as one of the sites for the Brain Health Cognitive Training Pilot Program--a joint partnership with the NGB Warrior Resilience and Fitness Division and the Center for Brain Health
The objective of this program is to build a service member's overall wellness through fostering brain health (making wise decisions, solving problems, interacting successful with others, and enjoying an emotional balance). It is a brain fitness program that includes cognitive training--online training modules, direct feedback utilizing a hand held "brain gauge", and customized app use to enhance cognitive skills. If the program is utilized effectively, anticipated benefits will result in statistically significant improvement in one's strategic attention and focus, improved reasoning, increased innovation, increased processing speeds, as well as, improved emotional regulation, increased mindfulness, decreased stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms, and increased resiliency skills.
The 176 WG Director of Psychological Health, Diann Richardson, is the POC and will serve to coordinate the project. Any of your personal/specific brain health data is communicated with the Center for Brain Health (not 176 WG personnel). If you have any questions, please contact her at (907) 306-9941 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in participating (200 Airmen in total) and can commit to quarterly training/app engagement (@30 hours per quarter) for one year, please complete the following registration by emailing email@example.com or filling out the form below. Please include the information below in the message body. All submissions will go directly to the POC. The project is targeted to begin in May or June 2021.
