American Academy of Neurology’s Brain Health Fair a Huge Success

The American Academy of Neurology's 63rd Annual Meeting, April 9-16.

The American Academy of Neurology Foundation’s first-ever Brain Health Fair drew more than 1,400 participants to the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki on Saturday, April 9.  The free public event included a film festival, interactive exhibits, family-friendly activities and Q&A sessions with experts – all to promote brain health.

The good news doesn’t stop there:  The American Academy of Neurology’s (AAN) 63rd Annual Conference at the Hawai`i Convention Center from April 9-16 drew nearly 10,000 participants, far exceeding the 7,000 initially forecast.  World-class neurologists traveled from 93 countries to take part in groundbreaking scientific sessions at the Center.

That translates into more than $42 million in state revenue, with the Center’s hotel partners benefiting from 72,360 room nights.

Post-conference activities included a special neighbor-island meeting on neuroimaging at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island from April 16-17.
