OverviewLongtime BrainHealth donor and champion Lyda Hill was selected for the 2022 Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy. The honor recognizes her philanthropic dedication to furthering science and supporting communities. In 2010, she signed a vow dedicating the entirety of her wealth to charity, and in 2014, Center for BrainHealth presented her with its highest non-science honor, the Legacy Award. The award recognizes the pioneering spirit of individuals whose vision and dedication to brain research enable the center to explore the vast potential of the human mind. Hill's foundation, Lyda Hill Philanthropies, invests in the future by helping empower nonprofit initiatives in science, education and conservation. Like the other 2022 Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy honorees, including Dolly Parton, Manu Chandaria, Lynn and Stacy Schusterman, and World Central Kitchen, Hill is committed to creating, lasting real change.
