Community Outreach and Public Service
Another important mandate of the Tanz CRND is to engage and inform the lay community and policy makers about our research in diseases.
The Tanz CRND has embraced the critical need to inform lay societies in Canada, the US and Europe about neurodegenerative diseases and about our research on them.
This public engagement and interaction has been accomplished via more than 100 structured interactions with lay chapters of neurological disease philanthropies and with Canadian and international lay news media. These activities have included seminars and hands-on tours at the Tanz CRND, as well as visits to local chapters of the ASO, and numerous television, newspaper and radio interviews.
