Brain Awareness Campaign

The Brain Awareness Campaign is a worldwide celebration of the brain that brings together scientists, families, schools, and communities. Although Brain Awareness Week is officially March 13-19, 2017, there are many ways to get involved throughout the year.

The global celebration, launched by The Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, presents an opportunity to bring attention to brain science advances and advocate for science funding. Brain Awareness Week serves as a launching point for year-round Brain Awareness activities.

Brain Awareness events are limited only by your imagination. Consider open houses at neuroscience labs, exhibitions about the brain, lectures on brain-related topics, displays at libraries and community centers, classroom workshops, and more. How will you educate the public and promote brain science?
