Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a worldwide campaign organized by the Society for Neuroscience and the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives to elevate public awareness about the benefits of brain research. U of U Program in Neuroscience graduate students have brought BAW to the Wasatch Front every March since 1997. 2013 marked the first year of the Utah Brain Education Alliance, formalizing a network of BAW volunteers across the state.
