On March 16-22, “Young Biologists Association” NGO, in collaboration with the Yerevan State University Student Scientific Society, organized “Neurological diseases around us” public campaign in the frame of “Brain Awareness Week 2015”. The “Neurological diseases around us” public campaign was aimed to raise public awareness about neurodegenerative (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease etc.) diseases. The stand-up banners were exhibited on March 16-22, 2015 in the central building of Yerevan State University. Each banner presented one public figure or celebrity, who has been touched with neurodegenerative disease (e.g. Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease etc.) and the necessary information about disease. The educational materials and posters were distributed among the students. The quiz-contests on neurological disorders were organized via Young Biologists Association’s Facebook page and the seven winners received the prizes (books etc.) and certificate of participation. On 18-20 of March, the movie screenings, discussions and presentations in YBA office was organized. Topics of presentations were Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Alzheimer’s diseases.
