Brain Awareness Month 2021

We've got events happening throughout New Zealand in March to celebrate Brain Awareness Month. Find out what we have planned to keep your brain busy!

2021 is a big year for us - we're celebrating 50 years of raising funds to support scientists and clinicians to research neurological conditions!

To celebrate we have events happening throughout the year but March is a special month because it's Brain Awareness Month. Below are details of all the events happening in March. You'll hear presentations on different topics from clinicians and scientists talking about the research they've been involved with. You can read more about the speaker and topic for each event on the registration page.

All these events are free! Just make sure to register so you can save yourself a spot! 

Update regarding Alert Level restrictions

Unfortunately we have decided to cancel the first week of our Brain Awareness Month events due to Alert Level restrictions in Auckland and across New Zealand in response to the latest outbreak of COVID 19.
