Save the Date: Promoting Brain Health for Life, December 15–16th, online

We need a dif­fer­ent, two-pronged approach to address the Brain Health for Life chal­lenge: instead of try­ing to treat dis­eases, we need to focus on pro­mot­ing brain health, edu­cate and empow­er the pub­lic to adopt life­long healthy lifestyles in order to min­i­mize the risk of devel­op­ing psy­chi­atric and neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­eases. In par­al­lel, we need to gain a deep­er under­stand­ing of brain resilience and its mech­a­nisms, to be able to design inter­ven­tions to pro­mote it and delay the onset of clin­i­cal man­i­fes­ta­tions of dis­ease and the con­se­quent disability.

Here, we aim to pro­mote a glob­al ecosys­tem that engages mul­ti­ple rel­e­vant stake­hold­ers, brings togeth­er and adds val­ue to exist­ing efforts, dis­sem­i­nates knowl­edge, edu­cates and empow­ers the pub­lic, and grows the lead­ers of tomor­row by ana­lyz­ing mod­i­fi­able lifestyles as nutri­tion, sleep, exer­cise, social or psy­cho­log­i­cal fac­tors, among oth­ers, and pro­mot­ing brain resilience and reserve.

What: Check out the Agen­da Here, and Reg­is­ter Here. There’s a call for inno­va­tors to sub­mit pitch pro­pos­als by Novem­ber 9th Here — Appli­ca­tions must describe stud­ies or tech­nolo­gies on neu­rol­o­gy, cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem, psychologic/psychiatric dis­or­ders or to pro­mote brain health, from aca­d­e­mics or start-ups.
