Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We organized a public talk on the topic of epilepsy: what it is, how we can understand it, and how we can give first aid. The event was on a Thursday evening at 7pm, thinking it would be a good time for people to come (last year it was a good time). However, only 8 people showed up. We were sad about it, but those 8 people were very engaged, asked lots of questions and were taking notes!
