Brain Day Association of U of T

The focus of Brain Day Association of U of T is to raise awareness about the irreparable nature of brain damage and the importance of protecting the brain. We do this by bringing together UofT students, staff and alumni with an interest in the Central Nervous system in the aims of empowering the community for a long-term health cause; and in so doing, allowing the UofT students staff and alumni to apply their knowledge of basic neuroscience and neuroanatomy as educators in a classroom. We interactively educate elementary school students about the brain and spinal cord on a day during Brain Awareness Week in March. The focus is on the anatomy, function and importance of the brain and spinal cord in day to day activities in life. Finally, we train children in the necessary custom of wearing protective gear in a proper and consistent manner.
