Western Kentucky University’s (WKU) Institute for Rural Overall health (IRH) has joined forces with the Center for Applied Science in Overall health and Aging (CASHA) to collaborate on an revolutionary Bingocize® workshop. This workshop focuses on workout, COVID-19, influenza, herpes and pneumonia education and wellness promotion.

The project is led by Dr. Kim Hyperlink, Co-Director of IRH, and Dr. Jason Crandall, creator of Bingocize® and Co-Director of CASHA. They are joined by Dr. Mark Shaffer, a CASHA researcher, and Dr. Cara Hottigan of the CHHS College of Nursing and Allied Overall health.

Funding for this project was offered via a partnership with the USAging-led Vaccine Collaborative on Aging and Disability. A total of $152,000 will be awarded to generate, give and help in the implementation of the new Bingocize® workshop.

Dr. Kim Hyperlink expressed her excitement about the project, saying, “The Rural Overall health Institute is thrilled to be a component of this Bingocize® workshop that not only focuses on vaccination education, but also involves activities that market everyday habits to strengthen immunity, wellness and illness prevention in older adults across Kentucky.”
