    Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics

    Anjan Chatterjee, MD, FAAN — Director, Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics

    The Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics (PCfN) is the first research center in the U.S. dedicated to studying the neuroscience of aesthetic experiences. Their mission is to understand the nature of aesthetics and why such experiences matter, with a particular focus on examining ways in which architecture has an impact on our well-being. We are proud to partner with Dr. Chatterjee and PCfN in the design of our treatment facility with an approach that supports treatment, rehabilitation, and stress mitigation. Dr. Chatterjee and his lab have thoughtfully designed a refresh room dedicated to the Alpas staff and patients. The space, a conduit for PCfN research, is fully adaptable and intuitive as a response to the feedback experienced.

    James Getzen — Founder, West for the East

    West for the East is a not-for-profit organization that provides adventure and outdoor recreation opportunities to individuals and groups without regular access to the United States' great mountain west. They do so by providing guests with the airfare, transportation, and guidance required to experience some of the country's most breathtaking landscapes — driven by their understanding of the deep impact that these experiences can have for those recovering from abuse, trauma, addiction, loss of a loved one, or financial hardship. We share in West for the East's firm belief that Mother Nature has an unparalleled ability to bring peace to those who need it most.
