The Brain Institute of America Foundation – Advocacy Video Campaign Success!

The Brain Institute of America Foundation funds neurological research programs centered around mental health, brain cancer, and other neurological disorders. Funds are provided as grants to recipients for biomedical research dedicated to developing cures or solutions to these challenges. 

The Foundation is also a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and educating others about mental health, brain disorders, and neurological disease, and also supports programs that promote cognitive function and brain health.

Recently, The Brain Institute of America Foundation developed a campaign to launch a long overdue advocacy video. I am happy to report, we reached our funding goal. Yay! This is for all you survivors out there! Keep on winning by living every day to the fullest.

Thanks all.

Hello, this is Dr. Adams checking in. I wanted to start by first thanking our new team members as they have helped move forward an Autism outreach effort my group launched in early 2018. 

If you go to our autism page, you will see I started posting some interesting scientific articles regarding autism.

However, I have refurbished this entire process, and those wanting to know more about the actual science behind autism can subscribe to our news feed at –

Here you will see regularly updated content about the latest science in the autism field. Also, depending on the tier you subscribe to, members can get access to many other perks, including brain institute gear, word puzzles, and access to other online social media content.

So take a moment and visit our page, follow us, and subscribe to our feed. 


Thank you all for your continued support!
