UF Health Vitality Mind

Welcome to UF Health Vitality Mind! The purpose of this innovative collaborative program between The Village in Gainesville, FL and the University of Florida is to explore strategies to help older adults maintain and improve their brain health and quality of life. We are also a VITAL ‘learning laboratory’ and hope others will join in our quest to uncover new possibilities for maximizing brain health.
