Commencing in March 2007 the Neuroscience Outreach Program has hosted several public lectures on the topics of Childhood Development, Physical Rehabilitation, Aging and Mental Health. The purpose of these research days is to help educate the local public about current neuroscience research happening at Queen's University. Each lecture
is organized such that the public has an opportunity to meet and talk with local researchers afterwards. All our lectures are free and open to everyone.
Our most recent public lecture was held at the Isabel Turner Library on the topic of Dementia and Alzheimer’s. We are currently looking at hosting another lecture on the same topic in the Belleville area. We are always open to hosting information sessions of interest to the general public. If you are a neuroscience trainee who would like to host this type of initiative, please contact Amber Knuff for additional information. She can be reached at email@example.com.
