The EPIC Centre’s innovative COVEPIC (Cognitive and spOrt Virtual EPIC training) project offers virtual at-home training programs to adults 50 years and over who are at risk of physical and cognitive decline.
In 2020, a pilot project conclusively demonstrated the benefits of the program. Support from TD Bank Group will help extend this project to participants in several remote areas of Quebec. The goal is to improve the health and quality of life of thousands of people who are at risk of physical and cognitive decline. The COVEPIC project is supported through the TD Ready Commitment, TD’s global corporate citizenship platform that aims to increase equitable access to health care for all.
Participants will contribute to the development of an artificial intelligence platform that will provide personalized at-home physical and cognitive training programs tailored to their individual needs. The online platform will be free and available to anyone.
The COVEPIC project is led by Dr. Louis Bherer, a neuropsychologist and researcher with more than 15 years of experience researching prevention. His research team includes health care professionals and scientists who study the effects of cognitive stimulation and physical activity.
Thank you to TD for supporting sensitive hearts!
