About Brain Awareness WeekMarch 13th, 2017
Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign and was established to raise awareness of research into the brain and the benefits of this research for everyone. The week-long campaign happens every year and is due to take place from the 13th March until the 19th March 2017.
It aims to bring people with an interest in brain injury together, including scientists, families, people who have suffered a brain injury, schools and communities to promote brain research and encourage neuroscience development.
Many people are encouraged to take part in Brain Awareness Week, whether it’s a neuroscience lab opening its doors for an open day, an organisation holding an exhibition about the brain, preparing displays for libraries and community centres or by spreading the word of the great brain research that has taken place that will pave our understanding of the brain moving forward.
Any organisation can sign up to become a partner of Brain Awareness Week to show their commitment to educating and advising people about the brain and valuable brain research.
By joining Brain Awareness Week, organisations can:
- Make people aware of events and how you are supporting Brain Awareness Week.
- Help to spread the word about brain research, how important this is and its role in improving understanding and ultimately peoples’ lives.
- Share knowledge and information to the wider public and to help them with their own health.
- Encourage future neuroscience research and development.
Registered partners also have access to a calendar of events taking place throughout the week and the rest of the year, as well as free resources and materials to help with ideas on planning an event, improve education and build links with other like-minded individuals and organisations.
At CFG Law we appreciate the real benefit of brain research, and in particular research into brain injury and helping to understand and treat people who have sustained a brain injury. We help many clients after they have sustained a traumatic brain injury and look eagerly to neuroscience research to ensure the best treatment options are implemented for our clients as quickly as possible.
We also understand the importance of educating people about the brain and brain injuries, helping them to understand the symptoms associated with brain injuries and how these can affect people in the short and long term.
