Barrow Neurological Institute Hosts Genius Bar

Barrow Beyond members raise $75K during inaugural event

More than 150 Barrow Beyond members and guests mingled with leading Barrow doctors during the inaugural Barrow Genius Bar on March 8. Alexis and Bonsal Glascock hosted the evening in their Paradise Valley home. The event raised more than $75,000 in support of research and innovation at Barrow Neurological Institute.

During the Barrow Genius Bar, eight of Barrow’s doctors – the “Geniuses” – shared knowledge and insight about their specialty with guests in a speed dating format. Members were seated at tables, and doctors spent 10 minutes at each table, giving a brief overview of their specialty before answering questions on topics that included neurosurgery, Alzheimer’s disease, concussion and migraine.

The participants included Dr. Michael Lawton, Barrow president and CEO; Dr. Michael Bohl; Dr. Anna Burke; Dr. Javier Cárdenas; Dr. Kerry Knievel; Dr. Kris Smith; Dr. Kevin Yuen; and Dr. Glynnis Zieman. Special guest D.J. Humphries from the Arizona Cardinals joined in the discussion pertaining to concussion and professional athletes.

Barrow Beyond is a group of individuals who support the mission of Barrow Neurological Institute through philanthropy, leadership and service. The funds raised will be directed toward a research project or clinical program voted on by members.
