Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
I am the Women’s Issues Chair of my DAR chapter. My father endured the effects of Alzheimer’s disease for 14 years before his death last year. I feel it it imperative to raise awareness of the newest brain health research in order to help others to remain their healthiest and not have to endure a battle with dementia for themselves and their loved ones.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Make the quest for brain health information relevant and personal. Thank you.
