2023 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars

2022 Tom Leppert BrainHealth Scholars learning from firsthand experience working with an EEG cap.

2022 Tom Leppert BrainHealth Scholars gain firsthand experience with an EEG cap. The 2023 program was named for Todd Platt, this year's 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 a four-week, in-person educational internship in Dallas, Texas. The 2023 cohort meets from June 6-29. Undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges and universities, pursuing any field of study, are eligible.

Scholars explore the importance of brain health to individuals and society and some of the underlying science, as well as everyday brain-healthy practices. They can also take part in our landmark study, The BrainHealth Project.

The summer program culminates in a team presentation, after which a $1,000 stipend will be awarded to each BrainHealth Scholar who has attended all sessions.

Made possible thanks to a gift from Ike Brown, Sid Brown, Jeff Brown and Eric Green
