Community Activities



Our faculty is involved in many professional organizations that afford them the opportunity to go beyond the clinic or research lab and share knowledge with the community. For the past decade Neuroscientists at the Anschutz Medical Campus have provided outreach programs to elementary and high school students and teachers at nearby schools during a national event in March called “Brain Awareness Week.”
This activity is sponsored by the Society for Neuroscience comprised of over 40,000 members. Professors Kristin Artinger (School of Dentistry) and Thomas Finger (School of Medicine) have lead these efforts to orient young minds to the intrigue , challenge, and promise of brain research.
