Their goal is to add 10,000 new voices to the Pediatric Brain Mapping Project by the close of Brain Awareness Week on March 16! This project is "an initiative to identify the millions of children and young adults living with one of the more than 600 different pediatric neurological conditions and the organizations that support them. This population is invisible and underrepresented. It’s critical that we make their presence and our organizations known to policy makers, pharmaceutical companies, and all the other funders of science who often ignore the importance of studying the developing brain."
The Map creates a focal point for uniting and mobilizing patient advocacy efforts and will eventually lay the groundwork for a Natural History Database of Pediatric Neurological Diseases that scientists can use to find treatments and cures.
So, please consider joining the Brain Mapping Project and being one of those 10,000 new voices needed to make an impact.
