Dear BNC friends and colleagues,

We recently announced Sustaining the Mind's campaign countdown.
We invite you to share THIS VIDEO with your BNC chapter, friends, community members and family. Brandeis' Neuroscience Department is among the nation's most respected, prolific, and lauded. Our scientists are publishing new research that has the potential to impact the way we live. Help us finish the campaign by calling the National office at 781-736-7588 or make a gift online.
With sincere gratitude,

Barbara Sander

Dear Member:

The Conejo Valley Chapter is looking for a few good men and women to join our Leadership Development Program.

What does it take to run a BNC chapter of 500+ members? From Membership to Study Groups - Special Events to Learning Opportunities and Social Justice programs - everything is planned by a team of committed volunteers.

The end result is the fulfillment of our philanthropic mission to help fund vital medical research at Brandeis University while bringing our members the benefits of social interaction, friendship and intellectual stimulation.

Perhaps you've thought of getting involved but can't quite decide what your area of interest is or how much time would be involved. Would you be willing to attend a few Board or committee meetings to find out? No commitments, no responsibilities - just an opportunity to observe and see what goes on - up close and personal.

What have you got to lose? It may be a cliché, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Contact: Carol Smith at carolovestan@gmail.com or

to explore the possibilities.


….a big THANK YOU to the Conejo Valley Chapter and its Presidents, Susan Barnett and Carol Smith, from your BNC Western Region Presidents, Honey Bencomo and Sharon Cohen:
We owe you a huge debt of gratitude for being the host chapter at the BNC Western Region Conference held Jan. 19-21, 2014, at the Hyatt Westlake Plaza Hotel. We have received many congratulatory notes raving about how everyone felt so welcomed by your warmth and your friendliness.

Brandeis University researchers in over 50 laboratories are already pioneering strides in the field of brain-related disorders, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases... read more...
