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 program. We were pleased to host this program with Dr. Dilip Jeste and his daughter, Dr. Shafali Jeste. We hope that the wisdom they imparted gave you some insight in how to be a “wiser” person, with your family, at work, and in your community. If your friends, family or colleagues were not able to join us yesterday, they can view the program on our YouTube channel.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, June 24th 5PM PDT when we welcome Michael Moss, the author of the gripping new book Hooked-Food, Free Will and How the Food Giants Exploit our Addictions. Dr. David Heber, Founder of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition and Professor of Medicine and Public Health, will join Mr. Moss in conversation. You can register for this free virtual program at: here.

Please visit our website, friendsofthesemelinstitute.org to see a calendar of upcoming Open Mind/#WOW programs and our library of videos from past presentations. There you will also find information about the other programs we support:  The Friends Research Scholar Program that awards grants to early career neuroscientists who are at the forefront of new discoveries about the mind and brain,  and the Open Mind Student Film Festival for high school students for mental health. The Resnick Board of Advisors supports early career clinicians through the Clinical Innovation Grants program. 

We deeply appreciate the support of our audience members who make it possible for us to continue to bring renowned speakers and films about mental health issues as a free public service to the community. If you are able, we hope you will support us as generously as you can. Your contribution will be 100% tax deductible.
