Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Held a support group and discussed Brain Awareness Week and did an educational seminar on the brain and epilepsy. This was the first year this was done in Tucson, and we don't have enough volunteers yet to really get the kind of program I had done in another state, but this was also the first year this group had partnered with Brain Awareness Week, so that makes it a success and we will only grow from here!
