Sharon Begley to Moderate Session: How will Health incor­po­rate Brain?

Sharon Begley, well-known science reporter and bestseller author, will moderate a session at the upcom­ing 2012 Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit (June 7-14th, 2012): How will Health incor­po­rate Brain? What will it take for the brain to receive as much atten­tion and proac­tive care as the heart does, both as a key organ on its own and as a key enabler of health.

Sharon Beg­ley, the senior health & sci­ence cor­re­spon­dent at Reuters, was the sci­ence edi­tor and the sci­ence colum­nist at Newsweek. She is the co-author (with Richard J. David­son) of the 2012 book The Emo­tional Life of Your Brain, the author of the 2007 book Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain, and the co-author (with Jef­frey Schwartz) of the 2002 book The Mind and the Brain. She is the recip­i­ent of numer­ous awards for her writ­ing, includ­ing an hon­orary degree from the Uni­ver­sity of North Car­olina for com­mu­ni­cat­ing sci­ence to the pub­lic, and the Pub­lic Under­stand­ing of Sci­ence Award from the San Fran­cisco Exploratorium.
