Brighter Brains Institute Awards Steven Umbrello a Certificate in “Brain Health and Social Policy”

Posted: Tue, October 13, 2015 | By:



Steven Umbrello has recently completed his all his course work for the Brighter Brains Institute’s Certificate in Brain Health and Social Policy.

Steven completed the course work in a remarkably short time.

We are especially proud of three essays that he wrote for this course were published at IEET.org (Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology).

The highly commendable essays are:

“Nicotine’s Cognitive Benefits – Six Ways to Ingest It” published Aug 31, 2015

“The Orphan I.Q. Dilemma: Brain Plasticity and Environmental Enrichment” Oct 16, 2015

“Taxing Sugar Products to Elevate Brain Health” Oct 13, 2015

The “Taxing Sugar” essay has also been submitted to the Transhuman Policy Center.

In addition to these essays, Steven also completed an extensive survey questionnaire, he wrote critiques of numerous transhumanist essays, he wrote two additional essays, he learned how to promote his essays via social media, and he created educational memes.

Brighter Brains Institute is thrilled by the work that Steven has done. We believe he has much to offer in the future as a researcher, writer, and activist on social issues involving mental health.
