The Brainworks Educational Program is designed to provide 7th and 8th grade students from Los Angeles Unified School District with first hand information on the field of neurology from a multidisciplinary medical team headed by world-renowned neurosurgeon, Keith L. Black, M.D. Physicians, researchers, and nurses provide presentations on brain functioning, neurosurgery, and brain research with a strong emphasis placed on the importance of continued education. Students are encouraged to ask questions of the speakers. Students will also have the opportunity to be involved in hands-on activities that will further reinforce the information conveyed by speakers.

This program reflects Dr. Black’s commitment to the field of medicine, the future of which lies with the education of children. “Brainworks” was held for the first time in May of 1998 and every year since then from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The program is free of charge to the students.
