What began in 2011 as an annual TED-style lecture series about advances in medicine became neuroscience theatre, selling out multiple performances and introducing new ways for the public to understand the human brain. Nine Network’s BrainWorks production—a televised one-hour special—won a Regional Emmy in 2016. Drs. Leuthardt and Kim are nationally renowned neurosurgeon scientists and hosts of the Brain Coffee Podcast.
In collaboration with the Nine Network of Public Media, The BrainWorks production will become an exciting catalyst for sharing the wonders of the human brain with regional and national audiences across digital platforms, through partner organizations, and with and with public television audiences nationwide.
We’re sure you’ll be captivated by this much-anticipated performance and we look forward to seeing you.
