The 2022 Tom Leppert BrainHealth Scholars learning from firsthand experience working with an EEG cap. The 2022 program was named for Tom Leppert, a nationally respected business and civic leader, past mayor of Dallas, co-leader of The BrainHealth Project, and recipient of BrainHealth’s prestigious Legacy Award. The annual award recognizes unwavering passion and advocacy that enable Center for BrainHealth to empower people everywhere to unlock their brain potential.

The BrainHealth Scholars Program is a 4-week, in-person (Dallas, Texas), summer opportunity during the month of June for undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges and universities pursuing any field of study. The goal of the program is to introduce the next generation of professionals to the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to translate research into practical applications. Scholars explore the importance of brain health, as well as everyday brain-healthy practices.

Weekly seminars provided by our faculty and staff provide insights into current research as well as an appreciation for the impact research has on society. Scholars can take part in our landmark research study The BrainHealth Project and learn strategies to improve their clarity, connectedness and emotional balance. The program culminates with a formal presentation highlighting the collaborative efforts of program participants.
