Help us design the best Brain Health Initiative and Study!
We want to hear from you about our Brain Health Initiative and Pilot Study. The pilot study will be launching in the spring of 2020. We want to make this the best possible experience for the community. That’s why we will be inviting you to attend a meeting in January to share your opinions. We will be crowd sourcing concepts from those who are on the front lines of brain health and brain illness: all of you.
