Brenda Dann-Messier was nominated by President Obama as assistant secretary for vocational and adult education on July 14, 2009. On Oct. 5, 2009 she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate and began her official duties on Oct. 13, 2009. More information on Dr. Dann-Messier’s bio Here.
Summit Agenda: 80% of the 38,000 adults over 50 surveyed in the 2010 AARP Member Opinion Survey indicated “Staying Mentally Sharp” as their top ranked interest and concern. This consumer-fueled interest, combined with growing research on lifelong neuroplasticity and the cognitive reserve and with a growing marketplace of “brain fitness” products and services, constitutes a call to action to expand the brain health toolkit to meet growing needs across the lifespan. Intel CEO Paul Otellini is quoted as saying, “You have to start by thinking about what people want to do…and work backward,” and the 2011 SharpBrains Summit: Retooling Brain Health for the 21st Century will do so by showcasing the latest trends taking place among consumers and professionals, in industry, research, technology, and care, to identify critical opportunities and challenges to develop a valuable innovation ecosystem which may exceed $2B worldwide in 2015.
