Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The Church service, was well attended, there were special recognition of the 15 students and their family. Dr. Fakoya shared on the Brain and there was some slides to accompany his presentation. This was really an eye opener for persons about facts on the Brain. Our objective was to educate the public about the Brain and yes were achieved. The Grass Root Neuroscience with the Primary school was very informative for the students, also they got to hold the Brain and some were a little unsure about doing that. Our objective was the get the students thinking about their career path and we accomplish that.
