Eligibility Requirements

This virtual study is recruiting people who have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a possible precursor to Alzheimer's and are:

  • interested in being proactive about their health
  • English speakers
  • have access to the internet
  • have a computer or ipad with video and audio capability (for online coaching sessions)

Individuals are excluded from participating if they are:

  • already participating in the BrainHealth Project
  • have MCI due to traumatic brain injury, stroke, or some other attributable cause
  • do not speak English
  • do not have internet access
  • individuals diagnosed with a psychotic disorder or uncontrolled psychiatric disorder
  • history of significant impact to head or neck that required medical attention
  • uncontrolled health issues (substance abuse, hypertension, hypo- or hyper-thyroidism)

About the Study:

This study is part of The BrainHealth Project, a prospective, longitudinal study focused on identifying determinants of brain health. If you are already a participant in the BrainHealth Project, you are not eligible for this study.

Participants start by getting a BrainHealth Index (a set of assessments), then meet virtually with their BrainHealth coach who is knowledgeable about mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The coach will help translate the strategies to the challenges of MCI. Progress is stored on a personalized, password-protected dashboard.


The purpose of Building Resilience in Mild Cognitive Impairment is to help individuals create a brain health plan by providing information on brain health and strategies on ways to optimize brain function in the midst of memory change.

What is Involved:

Participants in the study will:

  1. Get a personal BrainHealth Index (BHI), a composite measure of your brain's current fitness level at the beginning of study and six months later.
  2. Have three live virtual feedback sessions with a trained BrainHealth coach to review the BHI and set goals.
  3. Start training with self-paced online modules to help uncover meaningful ways to make the brain as efficient and dependable as possible.

The online training modules show strategies to adopt brain-healthy habits. Each one is typically about 10 minutes long. Participants will get periodic email nudges and tips to help practice along the way, with suggested brain healthy habits

that generally take about 5 minutes each.
