Upcoming Events: Seminar Series

The McCance Center for Brain Health Seminar Series meets every other week on Mondays from 11:00 am – 12:00 noon Eastern Time and brings upwards of 60 faculty members and their labs together to present on and discuss the development of brain health indicators and interventions, as well as efforts to integrate brain health assessments into primary care. This vibrant community of clinicians and scientists from across Mass General and its partner institutions is embracing radically new approaches to preventing brain disease and promoting brain health across the lifespan. The series often welcomes external speakers who are also conducting transformational work in this field.
