HOW TO PARTICIPATE
BRAD 2021 will be celebrated virtually on April 15th. We are collecting personal stories about diseases or medical conditions that have directly impacted your life or that of a loved one, human or animal. Stories will be shared on social media, and we will tell you which animal species helped find the treatment that benefited your friend, family member, pet, or yourself! Share your story here!
BRAD 2021 will be celebrated in-person on September 16th, 2021. How you choose to celebrate BRAD is up to you! Your celebration can be small (involving a single class or department), larger (involving the entire institution, company, and the general public), or anything in between. Here are example activities that may be part of your BRAD event:
Table with informational handouts, freebies, posters, and a support banner for participants to sign
Seminar on topics related to biomedical research and laboratory animal care/medicine
Rounds and case presentations related to laboratory animal care/medicine
Interactive activities such as games, trivia, jeopardy, and a scavenger hunt – often with prizes! See the “Games & Activities” section in the BRAD Toolkit for more ideas!
Tour of research facilities and/or vivarium
Have other ideas? Go for it and share them with us! We are always looking for new ideas to incorporate into BRAD. Make the event your own and have fun doing it!
