BrainWise in China

Posted On: October 23, 2001

Dr. Xiaoliang Li, a professor of public health at Kunming Medical Hospital in China, translated BrainWise’s materials to Chinese and successfully taught the program to teenagers. “There is a big need to teach students about people’s life, and we have successfully used the BrainWise curriculum to do this,” Dr. Li said via e-mail. In 2001, Dr. Barry trained over 400 government officials in China in the BrainWise program. The program is targeted to teach at risk youth, including illiterate rural girls who are targets of sex traffickers.
