Bonnie J Kaplan, PhD, is Professor Emeritus in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary; website here.


She has published widely on the biological basis of developmental disorders and mental health – particularly, the contribution of nutrition to mental health. Her efforts to include nutrition knowledge in the care of people with mental health challenges have earned her a variety of awards, including:

  • The Dr. Rogers Prize in September 2019

  • Selection in 2017 as one of 150 Canadian Difference Makers in Mental Health, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday

  • And in 2021 she was chosen as one of the tops “7 Over 70” in Calgary, partly for her book The Better Brain, written with Professor Julia Rucklidge, published by Harper Collins, as well as her two charitable funds supporting research by junior colleagues who study nutrition and mental health (over $1 million CAD).

Her primary goal is to influence the way mental health treatment is delivered.
