What is Brain Awareness Week?

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. Founded in 1996 by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, BAW unites the efforts of partner organizations from around the world in a week-long celebration of the brain every March. Partners include universities, hospitals, K-12 schools, advocacy groups, government agencies, outreach organizations, and professional groups.

During BAW, partners organize fun and fascinating events in their communities to educate and excite people of all ages about the brain and the promise of brain research. Activities are limited only by the organizers’ imaginations!

The Dana Alliance invites your organization to join the growing ranks of partners worldwide. Partnership in the campaign is free; programming by individual partners is undertaken at their own expense.
