As people age they can lose cognitive function: the brain’s ability to reason, memorize and learn.  Hip Health Research studies the effects that physical exercise has in the functioning of senior’s brains.  Researchers conducting the study enlisted a dynamic group of women to participate in weekly exercise classes.

Vancouver Foundation provided a $50,000 grant to UBC’s School of Rehabilitation Sciences to support this important research.

“The more strength you have in your body, the more you’re concentrating on the strengths of your body and exercising your mind” says Jane Shabala, senior participator.
