Brain Awareness Week nationwide is March 13-19th but its such a big deal here in Atlanta that we have extended it to an entire Brain Awareness Month. The events that take place in March are an opportunity for all of us to venture out of the lab and teach the public about what we love most… BRAINS! There are many ways that you can help— everything from visiting a local classroom to judging in science fairs to helping with special events. Please contact the Emory student member of the ACSFN committee, Kim Maguschak at firstname.lastname@example.org to help out.
A big thanks goes to the rest of the volunteers who help make Brain Awareness Month a success including faculty members Pete Wenner and Shawn Hochman and our GSU student couterparts Dayna Loyd and Michael Black.
