SPECIAL SYMPOSIUM: Brain Health: Tackling the Grandest Challenge of our Time (418743)

Tuesday, October 2
2:15 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Monet

Lasting brain health is the public’s leading concern and yet it only receives attention after something goes wrong. Healthcare is built around a reactive ‘sick care’ approach; nowhere is this more vivid than in brain care. Thanks to breakthroughs in neuroplasticity, proactive ways currently exist to harness the brain’s neural systems and cognitive capacities to build stronger, more resilient brains. This special symposium shares the bold launch of BrainHealth 2027 and how an international team of 25+ brain health experts is tackling the grandest challenge of our time – to maintain and even enhance brain health with pre-emptive measures.

Learning Objectives:

Sandra Bond Chapman

Founder and Chief Director of the Center for BrainHealth™, Dee Wyly Distinguished Professor, School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
University of Texas at Dallas

Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, Founder and Chief Director of the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas, Dee Wyly Distinguished University Professor and author of “Make Your Brain Smarter”, is committed to enhancing human cognitive capacity across the entire lifespan. As a cognitive neuroscientist with more than 40 funded research grants and 200+ publications, Dr. Chapman’s scientific discoveries elucidate and deploy novel approaches to advance creative and critical reasoning, to strengthen healthy brain development, and expand innovative thinking throughout life.

She is actively studying and discovering informative pathways to strengthen healthier brain functions, enhance cognitive performance, improve psychological well-being, and elevate real life functionality in health, injury and disease; identifying novel non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment approaches, and testing the effect of brain training to potentiate higher levels of brain performance. Dr. Chapman is discovering ways to build resilience, regain cognitive function and retrain the brain to maximize the immense potential of our most vital organ. Dedicated to improving lives today and changing how the public thinks and acts about the brain and its health, Dr. Chapman is committed to promoting brain health fitness, developing futuristic thinkers, and helping individuals, young or old, think smarter — longer.
