Brain Awareness Week 2011
Today marks the beginning of Brain Awareness Week 2011, which runs from 14 to 20 March.
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research. Every March, BAW unites the efforts of universities, hospitals, patient groups, government agencies, schools, service organizations, and professional associations worldwide in a week-long celebration of the brain. Founded and coordinated by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB), this is BAW’s seventeenth annual celebration.
Many Neurological Alliance members took part in BAW 2010. If you are interested in this year’s campaign, please visit the Brain Awareness Week website at www.dana.org/brainweek.
Members are asked to keep the Neurological Alliance informed of your events and activities for Brain Awareness Week so that other members can read about them on our website.
