Did you know that cardiovascular health throughout your life influences brain health in late life?

The future of ageing will be greatly impacted by the outcomes of the research undertaken at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA).  Our mission is to stay at the forefront of research into brain ageing and neurocognitive disorders.  Ultimately, CHeBA’s goal is for all people to achieve their full life span and enjoy a good quality of life unaffected by loss of cognitive ability. 

To achieve our goal, we need your help!  

One of the biggest global public health challenges in human history is dementia. With the number of people with dementia worldwide increasing rapidly, effectively tackling known risk factors for dementia could prevent up to one-fifth of new cases by 2025. 

Funding is desperately required to advance our research in ways to prevent cognitive decline, improve cognitive functioning as we age, devise better care for people with dementia and to diagnose people at risk for dementia. The researchers are also working on developing markers of early decline in memory and other cognitive functioning, so that brain diseases can be detected before the manifestation of dementia.

CHeBA is proud to present its latest initiative, The Dementia Momentum, a movement to bring researchers and the community together to change the future of dementia incidence. The goal is to drive momentum in awareness, research and societal change for a brighter future. You can read more about the initiative here.

We are also proud to continue our CHeBA Champions fitness ambassador initiative! This dynamic group of ambassadors in their 20s and 30s are, along with our Official Ambassador PJ Lane, championing healthy brain ageing through healthy lifestyles from a young age. You can read more about them here.

Support CHeBA and change the future of aged health in Australia.
