Ruth

Patient Leader

Ruth's passion and area of intense study and exploration has been the connection between the brain and daily functioning. This passion drives her desire to advocate for brain health through actively participating in life. Ruth writes about brain healthy living and has created a series of a photo-based thinking puzzles, games, and Apps that help players work through some of the effects of age, disease, or injury (TBI) on cognitive functioning and quality of life. Ms. Curran’s primary focus is on using a wide variety of games and “play” – those that inspire players to imagine, use strategies, and focus to succeed -- as a path to better thinking, better functioning, and better quality of life. Ruth believes that everyone - no matter their stage of cognitive life - has the power to harness and use neuroplasticity to live a richer, deeper, and more fully engaged life.
