High school students who aspire to pursue careers as brain surgeons or neuroscience researchers will have an exciting opportunity to compete in the 9th annual Brain Bee, hosted by Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. The event will take place on Burke’s campus (785 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains) on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at 4:30 p.m.

With a mission to “build better brains to fight brain disorders,” Brain Bee culminates in an international world championship, to take place this year in Washington, D.C. More than 25,000 students from 50+ countries compete each year in the competition. At Burke’s Brain Bee event, local students in grades 9-12 will be quizzed by a panel of the hospital’s clinicians and therapists on topics that include neuroanatomy, neuroscience, diagnoses and brain cell identification.

In addition to hosting the Brain Bee, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital offers a number of important initiatives to foster the next generation of elite neuroscientists, including the hospital’s nationally recognized, ACGME-accredited residency program.
The Brain Bee will be held in the Rosedale Conference Room of Building #4 on the Burke campus. Competitors must be high school students (grades 9-12) in Westchester County.

For additional information or to register, please contact Janet Goodman, LMSW at (914) 597-2237, email jgoodman@burke.org.

A Tribute to the Music of Charlie Poole

Recognized as modern leaders in traditional bluegrass, David Davis & the Warrior River Boys have thrown genre boundaries aside to delve deep into the roots of acoustic music in a stunning tribute to the legendary Charlie Poole. A generation before Bill Monroe was credited with founding bluegrass, the music of Charlie Poole and his North Carolina Ramblers was a common source of repertoire for many early bluegrass bands. Leveraging recordings from the 1920’s, Davis and his band have taken key elements from Poole’s music to create a masterful and exciting collection of old‐time tunes melded with bluegrass instrumentation, rhythm, and harmonies. The result is a modern take on the music of the man Davis believes is not only the ‘Grandfather’ of bluegrass, but of a broader roots music family.
