Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The First event was held at a local community center that serves a vibrant senior population. The objective of this BAW event was to provide an hands on workshop presentation allowing participants to learn through interactive games and play. Participants were able to take home BAW materials provided through the DANA Foundation. The weather was not great and turnout was not as good as expected. So materials were left at a display area for other visitors.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

Our senior population is growing every day and looking for materials that encourage a positive outlook toward aging. Feedback shows the materials and information from the DANA Foundation supports this need.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

Morning workshops well with the senior population schedule but not so much for other professionals who could benefit from the workshops. I think a lunch and learn approach might better serve more working professionals.
