Center for BrainHealth: Free Trainings and Contest

Updated: Sep 13, 2019

The touchstone of brain health is a person’s ability to function well in daily life and work. This includes making wise decisions, solving problems, interacting successfully with others, and enjoying an emotional balance. All of these functions demand the capacity to remember, comprehend and learn; to process information, events and people; to think strategically; and to be innovative in solving problems as they arise.

#2 The Art of Kindness Contest:


The Center for BrainHealth, part of UT Dallas, leads scientific research to enhance, protect and restore the brain. The guiding vision is to empower people of all ages to unlock their brain potential.


The Center’s new Kindness Initiative is launching this fall. The goal of the initiative is to better understand the neuroscience of kindness, empathy, and compassion in order to develop programs to fortify and extend the practice of kindness in our society.


To celebrate the kick-off of the Kindness Initiative we are hosting an art contest for high school students. Finalists will have their work displayed at The Art of Kindness event on November 13, 2019, 6:30-8:30 at the Center for BrainHealth. November 13th is also World Kindness Day! Friends and family are all invited to come enjoy the artwork and learn more about the science of kindness!


The grand prize winner will receive a $150 stipend.

Two runner-ups receive $50 stipends.
