  2. I want to congratulate Bobby on this very prestigious award. Bobby has been the heart and soul of OHSU’s more prominent public education efforts, Brain Awareness Week. This is a recognition from a society of over 60,000 neuroscientists world-wide that Bobby has been an excellent role model for making our brain science accessible to the public. Job well done!
