#ThankfulThursday is here and today we highlight Brain Awareness Week and show our appreciation to all brain advocates worldwide!
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
Founded in 1996 by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, BAW unites the efforts of partner organizations from around the world in a week-long celebration of the brain every March. Partners include universities, hospitals, K-12 schools, advocacy groups, government agencies, service organizations, professional groups, and affiliates.
During BAW, partners organize creative and innovative activities in their communities to educate and excite people of all ages about the brain and the promise of brain research. Activities are limited only by the organizers’ imaginations.
