Bingocize's Logo


What combines Bingo, exercise, health education and a whole lot of fun?  Bingocize®!  Started at Western Kentucky University, BINGOcize® is an evidence-based health promotion program that integrates exercise and health education for individuals with disabilities in a fun game of Bingo.

Bingocize® is now an international program serving over 500 facilities in 47 states.  This socially engaging, group-based program consists of 45–60-minute sessions, bi-weekly, over six to ten weeks. 

Expanding Everyone’s Reach

The Human Development Institutes (HDI) Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative (KIHC), established a strong partnership with Dr. Jason Crandall, the creator of Bingocize®, and his team at Western Kentucky University.  In an effort to increase the access for people with disabilities, HDI-KIHC is connecting with programs throughout Kentucky to provide training and support for the programThrough Universal Design strategies, HDI-KIHC has helped the Bingocize® program be more inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Examples of adaptations include:

  • Providing large-print materials
  • Using microphones and speakers
  • Demonstrating alternative exercises
  • Increasing diverse representation in exercise videos 
  • Simplifying health education questions through plain language
  • Supplementing health messages with images 
  • Allowing multiple means of participation 

As a result of these changes, HDI-KIHC has broadened accessibility and healthy practices to a demographic which is twice as likely to experience health complications.
