Session by Tom Warden, Allstate, and Henry Mahncke, Posit Science.
Description: Evidence-based cognitive training programs have been available in retirement communities for several years. Now, they are reaching a younger population including Boomers through innovative partnerships, like insurers.
In October 2008 auto insurance company Allstate and brain fitness software developer Posit Science announced a research collaboration that could lead to "potentially the next big breakthrough in automobile safety". The purpose of this session is to review novel ways of getting the science of cognitive training into the real world where it can help people. Representatives from Allstate and Posit Science will discuss why these partnerships work for insurers, developers, and end users. They will also provide a thorough review of the evaluation process a major partner goes through when selecting a cognitive training company.
