Public outreach

In addition to their research, teaching and clinical work, Mobility Project investigators are actively involved in public outreach and volunteer activities. Many investigators play leadership roles in non-profit organizations which serve the needs of people with movement disorders. They take part in fundraising and public awareness initiatives, and take the time to share their expertise with the public through media interviews and public speaking engagements.

Mobility Project researchers are also keenly interested in sharing their enthusiasm for science–and neuroscience–with children and youth. They are involved in various educational initiatives, such as Let’s Talk Science, SuperNova and Brain Awareness Week.
