Roadmap to Brain Wellness Consult
During this consultation, you and leading national expert Karen Miller, PhD, will discuss your brain health goals and create a Roadmap to Brain Wellness to ensure optimal brain functioning. A Roadmap to Brain Wellness Consult entails a customized package of our Lifestyle programs to ensure we are catering to your specific brain health needs.
This opportunity allows for an individual/couple/family to sit down with Dr. Miller for a personal memory education consult to discuss the current status of cognitive functioning and to outline an overall roadmap plan for brain health goals. For example, some individuals may want to do a combination of FitBrainSM, nutrition consults, Vital MindsSM, and/or additional consults with Dr. Miller. We will customize and tailor the appropriate educational program for each client.
