#1: Hey! It’s Jackie Slater

What’s Jackie Slater doing at PNI? The former NFL player who has experienced numerous concussions came to PNI’s brain health center to get an assessment and find out about the leading edge programs that aim at staving off conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and promoting brain health wellness and longevity.

#2: Remarkable results with deep brain stimulation

How two electrodes embedded in a patient’s brain saved him. When Charles was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, his severe and unusual symptoms exacerbated his restless leg syndrome which literally kept him up all night. He became a nightwalker. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery transformed his quality of life and his future.

#3: Changing your mind about psychedelics

What does it take to change your mind? Clinical trials at the Treatment & Research In Psychedelics (TRIP) program explore the effect of psychedelic-assisted therapy in treating behavioral health anguish such as anxiety, depression, or addiction, with the aim of bringing them into mainstream medicine. Philanthropy and your support make these trials possible.
