Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
I counted all the events held for the month of March. I conduct monthly brain training classes of which I held five. I presented a brain health session at the Illinois Association of Home and Community Education annual state conference. I also presented a session on healthy brains for fifth graders as part of a health jam 4-H program. I also published an article about Brain Health Awareness Week/Month in my weekly newspaper column that has a circulation of about 18,000. All of the participants of my brain training classes received the pencils and brain pamphlets that you provided me.
