As part of its existing For Health and Living’s Bee Happy Project that began in 2015, Inter Valley Health Plan launched a secondary initiative on January 28 in Victorville.
Bee Brainy is a series of educational classes, events and resources dedicated to brain health.
Inter Valley Health Plan, a not-for-profit Medicare Advantage Health Plan based in the Inland Empire, is committed to enhancing the mind, body and spirit of the older adult community in Southern California.
Its Bee Brainy initiative centers on all the elements that help maintain a healthy brain including diet, exercise, socialization and activities.
“Our Bee Happy initiative was so successful and well received, we wanted to provide community residents with additional resources just as valuable to help them maintain overall health, and what better way to do that than to start with the brain,” says Cyndie O’Brien, vice president of member services, Inter Valley Health Plan and creator of the Bee Brainy and Bee Happy program.
As part of the Bee Brainy program, Inter Valley Health Plan offers free monthly classes as part of its For Health and Living event calendar.
Classes include brain games like Bee Brainy Bingo, ABC’s of Vitamins for the Brain, Mind Diet and Heart Health=Brain Health.
Watch the Senior News events calendar for dates and times of Bee Brainy activities. Attendees are encouraged to bring friends and enjoy brain healthy interactive projects and refreshments.
