The Dana Foundation is a private philanthropic organization that supports brain research through grants, publications, and educational programs. The Foundation also coordinates the annual Brain Awareness Week (March 10 - 16, 2014), a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. In 2013, campaign partners held more than 950 events in 58 countries on six continents. ( The presentation will describe how we have extended the reach of this campaign and our other programs by putting scientist-vetted content in the hands and on the screens of people around the world.
