LB12 Research Update Regarding Resilience and the Benefits of Exercise

Register for Courses

October 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am



This course will explore how non-pharmacologic strategies including exercise, nutrition, and cognitive stimulation are important for healthy aging. We will look at how these strategies, focusing particularly on exercise, benefit physical and psychological well-being. Join us to hear about the outcomes of an exercise study conducted in 2020 and about the results of the resilience study and impact of Covid at Living Branches from 2021. We will compare what worked with what didn’t, and share recommendations regarding resilience.

About the instructor: Dr. Kathleen Fisher.

Kathleen is a nurse education and researcher from Drexel University. As a nurse and nurse practitioner, she has enjoyed working with many different groups of people including Native Americans in Alaska and on the Hopi reservation; with migrant farmworkers from the Eastern shore of Maryland; and in many underserved communities, e.g. people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those experiencing homelessness.

Dr. Fisher has collaborated with Drexel University and Living Branches in dementia care strategy programming since 2017. She enjoys using a “transformative, participatory action research approach” meaning that she likes empowering residents and staff on concerns that they would like to work on.
