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, resilience and fortitude. The program culminates with a formal poster presentation highlighting the work of program participants.
