Brain Awareness Week 2019 may have concluded in March, but since April, nearly 300 partners from around the world have submitted Partner Reports detailing results of their events and activities from the campaign. In these reports, Brain Awareness Week partners share their successes as well as what they would do differently next time. They also describe the activities they organized, details of how they publicized their events, and offer advice on planning future Brain Awareness Week events.
Many partners also submit photos of their brain awareness festivities. Below is just a sampling of some photos we received, which will be featured in our new Brain Awareness Week Photo Gallery in the coming months.
