Brain Awareness Webinar Recording is Now Available to View


Mercer Council extends a thank you to all participants who joined us on March 17, 2021 for the Brain Awareness Zoom webinar, “Learn Neuroscience: Alcohol and the Developing Brain”. A special thank you also to Dr. Rola Bekdash from Rutgers University for providing the students an insightful and informative presentation about the inner workings of the human mind and effects of alcohol on the developing brain. Mercer Council is proud to have been a part of Brain Awareness Week this year and we look forward to participating again next year!
