World Federation of Neurology readies brain health campaign
The London-based World Federation of Neurology has begun an international campaign intended to raise awareness of brain health. Called the “Brain Health Initiative,” the campaign will provide information on the importance of brain health and consequences of poor brain health. Its aim is to simplify complex topics related to neurology through a series of presentations consisting of video and supporting text. The campaign will begin with a free webinar on Feb. 17. The World Federation of Neurology represents 122 neurological societies internationally.
“Brain health impacts every aspect of life, so poor brain health negatively affects an individual's life, including their family, friends, job, passions and goals,” said federation president William Carroll. “This impacts society as a whole as people are pulled away from their communities, resources are depleted and productivity is lost. When we promote and nurture brain health, we can change millions of lives around the world. The World Federation of Neurology developed the Brain Health initiative to further our mission of fostering quality neurology and brain health worldwide. The program gives viewers the knowledge and tools they need to take steps to improve brain health both personally and within their own community.”
