Through our research and extensive collective medical backgrounds, we work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Most people don’t understand brain health is in their hands. We host local workshops in community centers, churches — places where members of the community are known to congregate — to arm people with knowledge to improve brain health.
We involve local community leaders across all industries – government, civic, business, faith – and equip them with the best strategies to approach brain health education and implementation for their communities.

The Beach Cities include Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach, California. With a total population of 123,000 residents, 13% of which are over the age of 65, our current health initiatives focus on Dementia and general brain health. HMI is at the initial stage of a large-scale clinical trial in The Beach Cities Health District of Southern California that investigates the influence of a comprehensive lifestyle program on long-term cognitive health and health in general. We also work extensively in the local community to provide education and raise awareness about our brain healthy message.
Sedona and Northern Arizona are home to a very diverse population and the natural beauty of the landscape attracts over 3 million tourists annually. Over a quarter of the residents of Cottonwood and Sedona are over the age of 65. In the larger community of Flagstaff approximately 10% are over the age of 65. Surrounding areas also have large tribal populations. With the high population of seniors, Alzheimer’s and other dementias are the dominant mind related health issues. HMI’s mission in Sedona and Northern Arizona will be focused around prevention of Alzheimer’s and other dementias - even possible reversal of mild cognitive impairment. Together we will build community awareness and develop support among community leaders and healthcare organizations. Down the line we would also like to address the interrelated issues of Depression, Substance Abuse and Suicide which are also higher than both the national and state wide averages.
