BrainHealth Scholars

2023 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars

The 2023 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars gather together at the start of the program.

The 2023 program was named for Todd Platt, recipient of BrainHealth’s Legacy Award. Todd is CEO of Hillwood Investment Properties, a Perot Company, and a longstanding advocate for Center for BrainHealth.

The BrainHealth Scholars Program is an in-person educational internship in Dallas, Texas. Undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges, universities and any field of study are eligible to apply.
Over four weeks, scholars explore the importance of brain health and learn underlying science and everyday brain-healthy practices. They also have the option to join our landmark study, The BrainHealth Project. The summer program culminates in a team presentation, after which scholars who attended all sessions are awarded a $1,000 stipend.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2023 program made possible thanks to a generous gift from Ike Brown, Sid Brown, Jeff Brown and Eric Green.
