Brain Awareness Week Events

13 Feb Brain Awareness Week Events

Brain Awareness Week is an international campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.

Every March, organizations worldwide focus on brain health and disease by holding events such as open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; social media campaigns; displays at libraries and community centers; classroom workshops; and more.

This year, Huntington Medical Research Institutes is doing its part by holding special classroom sessions with 7th and 8th graders at Blair Middle School in Pasadena on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017. The program will be repeated for high school students, their parents and the general public from 3:30 – 5:00 pm. Please see the attached Brain Awareness Day flier for time and more details.

Wright Auditorium at the Pasadena Public Library located at 285 E Walnut St, Pasadena, CA 91101. This event features an interview with HMRI’s Dr. Mike Harrington by Dr. Marie Csete, followed by Q&A.  Please see the attached Brain Day Celebration flier for more details. Click here.
