Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
It was an event to celebrate Brain Awareness Week and learn about brain injuries. People came out and learned about the brain with a movie and some late night snacks. The movie being viewed was Me And My New Brain, it was a look into a woman's life who is coping with a traumatic brain injury. In addition, there were be pamphlets available discussing the brain which were provided by the DANA foundation alliance for brain initiatives. I feel we achieved our goal and will hopefully partner with the science department next year to make the celebration that much more.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
People were fastnicate by the women's story in Me And My New Brain. People always like the bookmarks because, they are causal reminders of what they learned at the event. The best thing was that my school neuroscience department is interested in working with us next year.
