Title: Do Something New- Adaptability & Compassion in a Post-Pandemic World | 7:00PM-8:00PM CT
Bonnie Pitman is the Director of Art - Brain Innovations at the UT Center for BrainHealth. Pitman expands her research and teaching of the art of observation, meditation, and compassion. The Power of Observation initiative connects neurological research with the experience and process of seeing, looking and observing. Through her daily practice to “Do Something New” [ http://www.dosomethingnew.org], she invites the exploration and celebration of making an ordinary day extraordinary while dealing with chronic illness.
Julie Fratantoni, PhD, leads the Kindness Initiative at the Center for BrainHealth. This initiative is a research and translation program seeking to uncover and harness the brain’s capacity for kindness, empathy and compassion as critical components of overall brain health and well-being. Dr. Fratantoni received her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas. Her doctoral research focused on electroencephalography (EEG) and noninvasive neuromodulation to study language and cognitive function in clinical and healthy populations. Her great passion is to educate and train people on how to maximize their cognitive performance so that they can lead happier, fuller lives.
