Departments: The Waiting Room
Patients, families, and caregivers affected by neurologic conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, headache, multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy—and many others—are invited to register now to attend the free Brain Health Fair. The event will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. Registration is open to anyone interested in brain health at BrainHealthFair.com.
The Brain Health Fair is presented by the American Brain Foundation, the foundation for the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), which is bringing more than 12,000 neurologists and healthcare professionals to Philadelphia for its Annual Meeting, the world's largest gathering of neurologists.
“This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for the Philadelphia community to learn from some of the best and brightest neurologists in the world. They will teach free classes and share the latest advances in the prevention and treatment of brain diseases as well as ways for people to maintain a healthy brain,” says AAN member Brenda Banwell, M.D., chief, division of neurology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
The Brain Health Fair also features an exhibit hall, activities for kids and teens, musical performances, cooking demonstrations, giveaways, support groups, and celebrity appearances by former NFL star Ben Utecht and musician Billy McLaughlin.
