"After partnering with Dr. Chapman, it was an eye-opener to see how easily brain health can be measured, and how important it is to maintain it at every age. Maximizing our cognitive functioning is attainable and an important step in making good decisions over the entire lifespan." – John Migliaccio, AVP and Director of Research and Gerontology at MetLife Mature Market Institute


"As an athlete, I always knew the importance of training my body for optimal performance. It wasn't until I met Sandi Chapman that I learned that the same is true for my brain. It has eased my concerns about my future health after spending more than ten years in the impact lifestyle of the NFL." – Daryl Johnston, former Dallas Cowboy, NFL commentator, and business leader


"I've had annual physicals for over thirty years, so it made sense to check the top third of the body also. Taking the BrainHealth Index gave me a sense of peace knowing that I had a baseline of my brain function and could measure any issues that arise in the future." – Lyda Hill, Dallas-based philanthropreneur


"SMART tactics truly changed my life. I can't think of any other training I've had that has delivered benefits so quickly and deeply." – Laura Sanford, regional vice president, AT&T
