Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We were able to organize 2 events this year due to Covid-19, which affects our country like the whole world. One was a presentation titled “Our Brain and Sensory Organs”, and the other was the social media campaign “Let’s Walk For Our Brain Health”. We tried to support Brain Awareness Week with the information we shared on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BeyinFarkindaligiHaftasi.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Some negativities (unhappiness, despair, etc.) that developed as a result of people not being able to leave the house due to Covid-19 affected our activities. It saddened me, as a partner, not to be able to hold the old magnificent Brain Awareness Week.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Even though the event we organized on Zoom was not like face-to-face, it was still good. I hope next year the whole world will get rid of Covid-19 and we can do our face-to-face events.
