It’s Time to Get Smart About Brain Health

Honolulu will host the first-ever Brain Health Fair by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation on April 9, featuring expert advice, activities for children, health seminars, and a film festival, among many other educational events.

The free Brain Health Fair is open to anyone interested in learning how the brain works, particularly for patients, caregivers, and families affected by neurologic disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, headaches, stroke, brain injuries, and Parkinson’s disease.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best neurologists in the world, who will share the latest advances in the prevention and treatment of neurologic disorders as well as ways for people to maintain a healthy brain.
