About The Brain Health Initiative
The Brain Health Initiative (BHI) is a cutting-edge, new approach to studying and taking action on brain health and brain illness. This approach is set to revolutionize associated research and position the Gulf Coast as a global leader in scientific transformation. Through a groundbreaking collective impact framework that seeks to engage community members in the full brain health promotion, research and innovation process, the BHI will draw on some of the brightest minds of our time to address what experts say may be the biggest medical priority of the 21st century:
Featuring collaborative leadership from Massachusetts General Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital, and the Academy for Brain Health and Performance, the BHI will focus on the science, application, and innovation of brain health promotion, prevention, early identification, innovative intervention, and performance optimization across the lifespan. This focus intends to increase brain health protective factors and reduce risk factors, improving brain health outcomes across the lifespan for the Gulf Coast region and beyond.
