Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
Brain Awareness Week Webinar: https://alleninstitute.org/what-we-do/brain-science/events-training/brain-awareness-week-22/. We hosted a webinar with four scientists talking about clinical challenges and basic research related to Alzheimer’s. About 600 people attended live and another 4000 have watched the video in the last month. We worked with the speakers to have the contents of their talks align into a cohesive whole that captured information relevant to the public.
Social media campaign: We did “day in the life” profiles of neuroscientists on social media and used the #BAW2022 and #BrainAwarenessWeek hashtags.
