Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The community is now aware of the Intro to Neuroscience class at our school. It is hoped that community members will make informed choices about brain health. Students in grades K-12 were able to interact with our 'brain ambassadors' which will hopefully spark an interest for future studies and/or careers.

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