Brain Health Resource and Technical Assistance Center

ACPM is committed to educating physicians and health care professionals about the benefits of blood pressure control and other modifiable risk factors as a possible mechanism for reducing the risk of future impaired brain health and cognitive decline.

To raise awareness, ACPM is developing activities to increase the number of physicians and health care professionals taking action to assess, diagnose, and refer patients with brain health issues to evidence-based programs focused on self-measured blood pressure monitoring. Activities include a webinar series, leadership institute at Prevention 2019, and this online resource center containing relevant research, provider tools, and patient materials.

This initiative is supported by the CDC National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and the CDC Division for Population Health, and is part of a cooperative agreement between ACPM and the CDC Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support.


ACPM is developing and offering a range of online and in-person education activities for physicians and health care professionals to learn more about brain health.

Prevention 2019, Pittsburgh, PA, May 20-23, 2019
Brain Health Learning Institute
CME/MOC Pending; Live Educational Activity, May 2019

The ACPM Brain Health Institute, to be held at our annual meeting, Prevention 2019, will bring together experts in the field of brain health to present an overview of major CDC initiatives related to cognitive impairment. The Institute highlights clinical diagnoses commonly seen by physicians and health systems, and presenters will offer attendees information on successful strategies in the management of modifiable risk factors related to these diagnoses, such as control of high blood pressure to prevent cognitive decline.

At the institute, physicians will hear about ways to enhance follow-up after the clinical encounter and create relationships with the support networks that families need as they embark upon the journey of caring for a family member with cognitive impairment. A clinical case will be woven throughout the institute, helping participants identify real-life situations and cases where the skills they will learn can improve the care of patients and communities. CME/MOC credits will be provided, with further details to come. Register Today!
