Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We once again talked to students and the general public about neurological conditions, primarily the forms of intracranial hypertension. As we weren't sure whether we could repeat the previous years events, we did not have a firm date of title so it was done ad hoc. We handed out literature about Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension and material we had left over from previous BAW events. We did what we intended to do and raised a lot of awareness for IIH and the various forms of IH. Many of the people we talked to had no idea of these conditions, or their symptoms and life impact.
