PASADENA, Calif. [March 23, 2015] – Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), a leading biomedical research organization, hosted its inaugural Brain Injury Awareness Health Fair on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. in synchrony with national Brain Injury Awareness Month. The fair was hosted on the campus of the Huntington Memorial Hospital in HMRI’s Research Conference Center at 734 Fairmount Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105.
The Brain Injury Awareness Health Fair was a free event open to researchers, clinicians, public health practitioners, athletic trainers and coaches, as well as patients, families, and caregivers of those affected by a brain disease. Members of the public who have a general interest in brain health were also invited to attend free of charge.
Presentations were given by clinicians and researchers on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, stroke, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, and migraines. There was an opportunity to ask questions, and learn more about some of the innovative research that is being conducted at HMRI with their research partners.
Eligible student athletes will be able to enroll in a traumatic brain injury prevention and monitoring program and obtain appointments for complimentary brain imaging scans. All attendees will be given information on community resources and preventive care and have the opportunity to receive a free memory screening, a great tool for establishing a benchmark for future comparisons or for those who believe they may be at risk of developing neurological illnesses.
