Calling for Youth Nominations for Brain Health Scholar Program

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JUL 3, 2020

Beginning July 1, the Brain Health Initiative invites nominations of youth leaders (16 years or older) to the BHI Brain Health Scholar Program. 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, Brain 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. Nominations may be received beginning July 1 from collaborating school districts, schools, and youth organizations. Nominations should be student leaders who have an interest in science, medicine, and/or health and well-being.
