Dear Friends,

Thank you for participating in UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors virtual Open Mind/#WOW program. We were pleased to host this zoom event with Judson Brewer, M.D., Ph.D. and Julienne Bower, Ph.D. We hope that you found their conversation meaningful and inspiring and that you received some practical and clinically proven tips for Unwinding Anxiety. If your friends, family or colleagues were not able to join us yesterday, they can view the program on our YouTube channel.
