Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
I have participated in Brain Awareness Week in my local community for years. Being virtual it broadened our reach to more people and it was still well received. We were also able to tap into global experts. Immediate outcomes have been engaged in our ongoing brain health programs which we continue to grow.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
It is never too early to start planning for the next year. Our collaborators also had a benefit from the event and offered to partner up in 2022 already so we already have some “penciled in”!
