Feedback & Keys to Success

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

BAW provided our Student Interest Group in Neurology with additional motivation to hold events to raise awareness for brain research as well as careers in neurology and neuroscience. By holding this event, we provided more insights to medical students regarding these careers and opportunities.

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