Deadline for registering for Neuroscience Day is tomorrow, March 1, at close of business. We would love to see you -- and your stakeholders who are interested in Neuroscience! 

Registration:  https://brain.health.unm.edu

 

Here is a detailed description of the day's activities:  

UNM Neuroscience Day     Thursday, March 16, 2017

UNM Domenici Education Center

9 am

Poster session, community tables, and two sessions of Awareness Through Movement (R).

* If your nonprofit wants a display table about the condition(s) you represent, let us know. We have heard from some of you, but want to make sure we have enough tables set up. 

* I attended an Awareness Through Movement class today. It's great. It's also accessible for ALL abilities. The instructor -- from the UNM Center for Life -- plans on designing the class for chairs/wheelchairs, so that no one will have to stand. I highly recommend attending one of the sessions. (9:15-10 am or 10:15-11 am)

11:45 am

Michael C. Wilson Memorial Lecture with Robert T. Knight, MD, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, UC Berkeley, awards announcements, and more.
1:00 pm
Lunch
2:15
Supporting Caregivers in New Mexico:  What Models and Policies Work?
Panel and discussion  We hope to center the presentation/discussion on models and ideas that focus on solutions around outreach/education/training to move the conversation from frustrations to opportunities for next steps. We're confirming participants right now, but we're very excited about their caliber and broad perspectives.
3:30

Small group discussions

This year, again, we have reserved rooms for small group discussions. A few of you have reserved rooms around Parkinsons, MS, Autism, Brain Recovery/Repair, CCM, Aging and Memory. If anyone else wants a room, please let us know.

 

Finally, the attachment might be of interest to you an your stakeholders:  NM State Plan for Family Caregivers. Please feel free to pass it on!

 

Thank you,
