MU Extension offers new WITS Workout program 


JOHNSON COUNTY — The University of Missouri Extension in Johnson County is offering a “WITS Workout” pilot program developed by the University of Illinois Extension. 

The program has two main goals: to provide purposeful opportunities to engage intellectually and to increase socialization through ongoing group participation. 

This program is geared to older adults, but all individuals are welcome to participate.

The series, presented via Zoom, will utilize brain games, teaching and activities to increase brain health. 

“I am looking forward to offering this program to Johnson County residents,” Kyleigh Sullivan, MU Extension human development and family science field specialist, said. “The last year has been very isolating for so many individuals and I think this class, which combines learning and socializing, is a great fit for our community.”

MU Extension states that social connectedness and intellectual engagement are two lifestyle factors that contribute to your brain’s health. 

The program will meet for eight consecutive Mondays, from July 12 through August 30 online via Zoom. 

Registration is required. After registering, participants will receive the meeting link.

Registration can be done at extension.missouri.edu/events/wits-workout-johnson-county.
