We are also home to The Center for Healthy Aging, which explores the multiple factors contributing to healthy aging to enhance the quality of life for older adults.
We provide support for the community through our lectures and support groups, and provide groundbreaking care through our Cleo Roberts Memory and Movement Disorders Center.
We help train the next generation of researchers through our summer and school-year internships. Banner Sun Health Institute contributes to research around the nation through its Brain and Body Donation Program, in which local residents donate their tissue upon death to science. More than 1,600 local residents have donated their brain or tissue through the program.
