Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The CAH participated in Regina Brain Awareness Week (BAW) in order to emphasize the importance of brain health and brain research. This year’s event was a lecture by Dr. Mark Chignell, Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto—who discussed how appropriately designed technology can improve the quality of life of people living with dementia as well as how people living with dementia can be provided with meaningful activities and engaging interactions. Approximately 80 people attended the event. This event was also a good opportunity for future research collaborations.
