Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Conferences provided important information about different neuroscience topics to the general populations. Activities developed in elementary schools and thos carried out by the primary health care program helped to reach those persons whom we could not reach through the conferences, and for whon this information was very important
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Activities designed to reach the population "outside" academic forums are very useful to reach sectors of the comunity that could benefit from knowing more about different neuroscience topics but that would not attend to academic events
