Proactive action on brain skills, ahead of decline, should be more commonplace.


In this op-ed, Dr. Sandi Chapman, founder and chief director of Center for BrainHealth, shares a personal perspective on how brain health science has changed over the past several decades and how community partnerships hold the key to changing the future of brain health for the better. Ongoing research and programs in the Dallas area show that, for most individuals, what they do on a daily basis has tremendous impact on their own brain health.


"Now that we know the power of preventive, proactive brain skills, getting ahead of decline, disease and debilitating conditions like depression and anxiety should be more commonplace than it is. "But access is as important as awareness. There continues to be a dearth of research on the beneficial impact of improved brain health among those struggling day to day to survive. "Dallas has emerged as a leader in this area, and there are signs that improving brain health is becoming a pivotal goal of enhancing population health more broadly."– Dr. Sandi Chapman
