“You only use 10% of your brain” is a myth! Discover the neuroscience of how your brain keeps you alive, controls your emotions and decisions, and stores your memories. But you also should know what can harm your brain. A nurse administrator with Advocate Children's Hospital will share some of her most memorable, important-to-know brain injury stories from her years working on “the front lines” with patients. As a bonus, try out a concussion simulator and experience how a seemingly minor injury can affect your brain in a major way. Don't miss out – this program could literally save your life and introduce you to a career path in neuroscience, psychology, or health care.

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
