Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
Our event was to promote Brain and Epilepsy Awareness. Our VA is an Epilepsy Center of Excellence (ECoE) and so we displayed information on epilepsy as well as First Aid for Epilepsy and also promoted Brain Awareness by discussing ways to keep the brain healthy as it ages. We had a lot of interest in the BAW pamphlets provided by this website.
