Hey New Orleans, guess what? Next week is Brain Health Awareness week. Yep. Governor Bobby Jindal has declared it so. It’s from April 21-28 which coincides with the 64th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology that is bringing 12,000 healthcare pros into our fair city and they’ll also be sponsoring a Brain Health Fair in New Orleans.
FREE Brain Health Fair in New Orleans – Not Just for Brainiacs!
I guess New Orleans is the perfect place for this convention what with all the brainless things that go on down here. I mean just walk down Bourbon Street almost any Friday night and you’ll see what I mean. So our convention visitors will get an eye-full. Of course, I’ve been known to partake in some of the ‘brainlessness’ myself. But that’s not important.
What is important is that the Brain Health Fair in New Orleans is free! There’ll be exhibitors from Louisiana and from around the nation. Some of the best and brightest are coming to the Crescent City, world-class neurologists to share the latest research and advances in Alzheimer’s, autism, brain injury, epilepsy, headache, MS, Parkinson’s, stroke and a whole lot more.
Did you know 1.5 million American are affected by autism, Alzheimer’s affects some 5.4 million and 4 out of 5 families are touched by stroke? So getting up-to-date info about brain health is critical for everyone.
Here are some of the highlights:
- FREE Brain Health Classes
- 35+ Exhibitors, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, and the National MS Society
- Dance Demonstrations

Remember this FREE Brain Health Fair in New Orleans is going to start this Saturday April 21st and you can go and register at the website www.BrainHealthFair.com.
