June 3, 2019, Napa Valley, CA – Celebrating a quarter century of raising funds and awareness for brain-related disorders, The 25th Music Festival for Brain Health will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Staglin Family Vineyard in Rutherford, Napa Valley, California. The year’s musical performer is American music icon and nine-time GRAMMY award recipient, Sheryl Crow.
The Music Festival for Brain Health is America’s most important fund-raising event focusing on brain disorders, with a historical total, including leveraged grants from U.S. government agencies and private organizations, approaching $400 million. Last year alone, the event and ongoing efforts raised over $6 million to support the research to find treatments and cures for brain disorders. The Music Festival for Brain Health benefits One Mind™, leading research, education, treatment, and to eliminate discrimination surrounding brain disorders.
“As we celebrate a quarter Century of advancements, it’s also a time to reflect on how much more needs to be done,” said Garen Staglin. “Private funding continues to be critical in the discoveries that are beginning to transform brain health care. With donor support and the hard work of these rock-star scientists over the past 25 years, we are getting closer to unlocking the mysteries of the brain. These advancements to date are only the beginning of what we can achieve.”
The Festival kicks off with the scientific symposium, featuring keynote speaker John Krystal, MD, Chair of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Krystal is a world leader in research on post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, and depression. Following the keynote will be featured presentations by One Mind’s 2019 Rising Star Awardees. Eric Nestler, MD, PhD, Dean for Academic and Scientific Affairs at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, will moderate the symposium.
The symposium is followed by the world’s greatest cult wine tasting paired with hors d’ oeuvres provided by Bettina Rouas of Angèle Restaurant in downtown Napa. The day continues with an intimate concert performance by Sheryl Crow. San Francisco Bay Area comic, radio, TV and film personality Bob Sarlatte will emcee.
