Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The community and University students got a chance to know about the basics of stroke. The other sessions were canceled due to increased incidence rates of COVID-19 in local areas.

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

It would be very nice if some financial assistance is provided by DANA Foundation (at least the freebies to be distributed or some financial assistance to cover such expenses), as organizing free events become financially tough. This time we had to face this problem.
