FEB 21-22, 2024

Flipping the Script on Brain Health

Please join us for a first-of-its-kind, invitation-only gathering of changemakers representing multiple sectors across the country and around the world. This will NOT be a boring, sit-in-your-seat conference!
Over a day and a half on February 21-22, this highly interactive event will reveal visionary thinking on the power of proactive, preventive brain health – based on the latest brain science – and its enormous economic benefit (Brainomics®).
Together we will set the wheels in motion to build a better future for all generations. Join forces with other action-oriented leaders to drive change that will transform lives by influencing the most important sectors of our society!

Day One: The Context

Experience how leading experts have set the stage for better solutions.

Drawing on data and analysis presented by McKinsey Health Institute, we will examine the current state of brain health across generations and offer insights from the clinicians and coaches who work with them.
Our lunchtime speaker (virtual) Arianna Huffington will share thoughts on “thriving” from her global work with companies and individuals struggling with burnout and malaise.
An afternoon neurotech expo and fast-pitch showcase will spotlight some of the most innovative new approaches to understanding and improving our brains. A panel of nationally renowned neuroscientists will share recent breakthroughs in defining, measuring and improving brain health. The day will wrap up with a focus on brain health equity, and a challenge by Adm. (ret.) William McRaven to spur change that will benefit all.

Day Two: Diving Into Action

Concept new paths to transform every sector of society.

A morning conversation between Sarah Lenz Locke, executive director of the Global Council on Brain Health and Sanjay Gupta, CNN's Emmy Award-winning chief medical correspondent will focus on why now is the time for widespread adoption of brain-healthy practices. We have never had more upward potential – or more urgency to reverse decline.
In a series of exercises facilitated by renowned design thinkers Bruce Mau and Bisi Williams of Massive Change Network, we will reimagine the future and create actionable steps that will equip each of us to lead in the movement to bring better brain health to all.
