National Brain Donation Awareness Day: 5/7

National Brain Donor Awareness Day is May 7th

We are so grateful to Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), the American Brain Coalition and all those who have supported efforts to raise awareness of the need for brain donation for neuroscience research. On April 28, 2022, Congressman Blumenauer and Rep. Fitzpatrick introduced a joint resolution to designate May 7th as Brain Donation Awareness Day. This is a major milestone for us – one that we hope will have a great impact on science.

Learn more about this annual observance and why raising awareness of the critical need for brain donation is so important.
