BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK
The Psi Chi National Council encourages Psi Chi chapters to participate in Brain Awareness Week (BAW). The Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives developed BAW in 1996 to "advance public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research." Chapters might consider developing programs for their campus or visiting local schools to present about brain-related psychological research dealing.
