Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
I think an educated public benefits us all. Many people have questions about healthy aging and are interested in learning more. Immediate outcome is closer relationships with the partnering organizations.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
I feel there is a strong calling for more materials for families and individuals concerned or facing cognitive disorders or changes due to injury. More materials and manipulatives aimed at adults would be good
