The Child and Family Studies graduate interns will present the 8th Annual Celebration of Brain Awareness Week on Monday, March 31, 2014, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in room 114 of the Jessie Harris Building. The CFS graduate interns have designed and implemented lessons about the brain for children from kindergarten through third grade in selected Knox County schools. Please join us for their annual presentations, in collaboration with graduate students from the Dept. of Psychology and undergraduates from the UT NeuroClub, to celebrate the importance of brain research.
Brain Awareness Week (3/10-3/16) is an international effort organized by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives to advance public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research. The campaign includes partners around the world, such as medical and research organizations; the National Institutes of Health; hospitals and universities; K-12 schools; and professional organizations.
