Brain Health education is central to our mission, for the past three years, we have been honored to provide Brain Health First Aid to nearly all Newton Public Schools teachers. The ability to recognize behavioral changes is a protective factor for those facing brain health challenges. Strengthening the Brain Health toolbox for the educators who interact with their students every day makes our children and community safer.
