Philanthropist Kay Winzenried seeks innovative ways to create a real and lasting impact. Her recent gift to Center for BrainHealth follows her longstanding interest in the center's studies and programs. This investment will advance bold efforts to engage young adults during the center's 25th anniversary.


"The timing of her gift could not have been more perfect to fuel our global efforts to engage younger audiences. Kay's investment allows us to launch our first national marketing campaign which will be transformational to attracting and empowering young adults to take simple steps to build a better future, driven by scientific discoveries from Center for BrainHealth." – Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD
