Brain diseases represent already the main cause of disability throughout human life. In this short course, we set a global ecosystem focused on promoting brain health that engages multiple relevant stakeholders, analyzing modifiable lifestyles as nutrition, sleep, exercise, social or psychological factors, among others, and promoting brain resilience and reserve.

In addition to the lectures, you will be able to take part in the innovation track with a pitch session and matchmaking opportunities with KOLs and venture capitals.

This virtual and free of charge short course is part of ToHealth program, an EIT Health activity. The course is organized by Biocat, Institut Guttmann and “la Caixa” Foundation, with the collaboration of the Institute of Neurosciences of the Universitat de Barcelona, Meditecnologia and Medicen Paris, under the framework of B·Debate. This course will be certified for CME credits by the Catalan Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
