The 2015-2016 Minds Behind the MIND lecture series will resume on October 2015.  Leading researchers and clinicians from the UC Davis MIND Institute will present current research and new treatment findings.  The presentations will give our community a better perspective on the scope of research being conducted at the MIND Institute, the outcomes of this research, and ways they may support these efforts.

Lectures will be held on Saturday mornings at the UC Davis MIND Institute.  Information on research studies will be available and The Resource Center will be open before and after each presentation. There will also be an extended “ask the experts” session with the panelists after the presentation. Please note that seating is limited.

For more information about the series, contact Terri Contenti at 916-703-0289.
