Black Men’s Brain Health Conference

February 6 February 7

The Black Men’s Brain Health (BMBH) Conference during Super Bowl week aims to convene scientists, practitioners, and community partners to raise awareness about brain science research among Black men. BMBH strives to create a bridge for scientists, practitioners, & community partners to increase the inclusion of Black men in brain science research and to improve brain health among Black men. The conference serves to cultivate a culturally competent workforce committed to addressing Black men’s brain health, cognitive aging, and Alzheimer’s Disease/Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia (AD/ADRD) research.

The 2024 BMBH Conference will be held February 6 – 7, 2024 at the UNLV Student Union. President Keith Whitfield will be a keynote speaker on Day 2 of the conference, and UNLV Sports Innovation’s Jay Vickers will appear at both days of the conference. Other speakers include Dr. Robert Turner II from George Washington University, Dr. Monica Rivera-Mindt, from Fordham University/Mount Sinai, Dr. Lisa Barnes from Rush University, and many others.
