Feedback & Keys to Success

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

Professionals in the hospital were exposed to what my department does and how I can help serve them and their patients. The public was taught something about the brain and some were encouraged to seek medical advice regarding difficulties they were having (i.e., motor, memory, etc). Immediately, we received more consults and referrals from other departments in the hospital.
