Thank you for participating in UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute' for Neuroscience and Human Behavior's s first  virtual Open Mind program.  We were honored to host this zoom event featuring  Dr. Gary Small, Director of the UCLA Longevity Center.  We hope that you found Dr. Small's presentation on The Small Guide to Alzheimer's Disease informative and that it broadened your knowledge about Alzheimer's Disease. 


As we all adapt to these challenging times that keep us physically apart, we hope that our virtual Open Mind programs can help bring us all socially together as a community to discuss mental health issues that affect over 46.6 million people every year in this country alone (and that statistic was before the coronavirus pandemic!).

On that note, we are proud to announce that our next virtual Open Mind program will be held on Tuesday, May 19th at 4PM. Robert Bilder, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Biobehavioral Sciences and Psychology, will join us to speak about "On Being Together-Six Feet Apart - How to Stay Socially Connected in the Coronavirus Era".  To register for this program, please click Here.

We invite you to visit our website www.friendsofthesemelinstitute.org to learn more about The Friends Open Mind programs and our Research Scholar Program that awards grants to early career scientists who are at the forefront of new discoveries about the mind and brain that will lead to new treatments for mental illnesses and disorders.  We deeply appreciate the support of our audience members who make it possible for The Friends to continue to bring renowned speakers and films about mental health issues to UCLA as a free public service to the community. If you are not a member of The Friends and would like to support our work, we hope you will consider joining us today!
Thank you again. Stay healthy and safe and we look forward to learning and growing together.
