Brain Health Initiative (BHI)
Brain Health Scholars- Future Leaders of Brain Health!
The Brain Health Initiative (BHI) welcomes nominations of youth leaders (16 years or older) to work with BHI scientists beginning July 1. Nominations may be received from collaborating school districts, schools, and youth organizations. Nominations should be student leaders who have interest in science, medicine, and/or health and well-being.
Brain Health Scholars will work remotely with scientists and clinicians from the Brain Health Initiative for about 20 hours throughout summer and fall 2020 in its effort to promote and protect brain health, fight brain illness, and improve performance for all ages throughout the Suncoast region. In the future, Scholars may have additional opportunities to work with the BHI on brain health projects or learning experiences.
Brain Health Scholars will receive a certificate of participation documenting their service hours contributing to this unique opportunity to assist on a community-wide research study conducted by the Brain Health Initiative and Massachusetts General Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital.
