Brain Awareness Week
March 11 - 17, 2013
The importance of Brain Awareness Week is to educate the public about the importance of brain research as without research there is no cure. There are over 1,000 diseases and disorders of the brain and most do not have a cure. More than 25% of the population will experience a brain disorder sometime in their life. During Brain Awareness Week we want you to think about your brain and help fund research. For over 40 years, the Brain Foundation has independently funded the brightest Australian researchers investigating diseases and disorders of the Brain.
Come and visit the Brain Foundation in Martin Place, Sydney on Monday 11th March and receive a free lime green stress ball brain or in Brisbane, Queen Street Mall on Wednesday 13th March. Everyone is welcome!
