The BRiTE Wellness Program provides an innovative schedule which promotes brain and physical health among individuals with mild changes in thinking. We do this through physical, cognitive, artistic and social activities.
El Programa de Bienestar BRiTE es un programa innovador que promueve la salud física y mental entre individuos con cambios cognitivos. Lo hacen a través de actividades físicas, cognitivas, artísticas y sociales. BRiTE Wellness ha sido desarrollado por un equipo de expertos en cognición y conducta de la Universidad de Pittsburgh. El objetivo era crear un entorno para apoyar a las personas con cambios en la cognición, en el que puedan estimular su cerebro y su cuerpo.
BRiTE was created through a series of generous contributions from donors who wanted to help provide these services to the people of Pittsburgh. Our 800 square foot facility is located at the Sterling Plaza, 201 North Craig Street, in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh. Activities are scheduled at hourly intervals, with changing sequences from day-to-day. BRiTE members can attend as many or as few as they like. The activities are scheduled on a rotating basis, and the schedule is available on-line and at the program center.
Dr. Oscar López and Dr. James Becker of the University of Pittsburgh are the principal promoters of BRiTE. For this reason, they invited Dr. Mercè Boada, with whom they have collaborated for more than 20 years for the Barcelona - Pittsburgh Biennial Conference to the inauguration of the center, as seen in the video compilation of the BRiTE presentation.
