Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We had a table set up with the BAW materials, a computer with brain teaser games, an area of brain information, and brain diagrams. We also provided a short survey for students to fill out regarding their knowledge of brain health. The goal of this event was to provide students with a greater understanding of brain maintenance and importance. Out of the entire student body, there was great feedback on how the students really enjoyed coming to our booth and participating.
