Brain Health Education and Research Institute was founded by Dr. Michael Lewis in 2011 to pursue educational and research endeavors to further our knowledge of natural and nutritional ways to improve brain health. The initial focus of the Institute is educating providers and the public on the use of omega-3 fatty acids for the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of the brain prior to or following injury such as traumatic brain injury or concussion. With Dr. Lewis’ 30-plus years of military experience, a special emphasis is working towards improving the care and outcomes of our military personnel and veterans who have experienced psychological or physical trauma to the brain.
The Institute is an IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The Institute offices are located in Potomac, Maryland.
Our Mission Statement:
To protect and heal the brain through education of the general public, the medical community, and athletic organizations; and to advance nutritional research in support of brain health.
