UVA Hosting Brain Injury and Stroke Awareness Fair

Posted: Updated:

This weekend you can learn important information about one of the most important parts of your body - your brain.

The University of Virginia is hosting a traumatic brain injury and stroke awareness fair.

The health fair brings information and resources about the brain to people of all ages in a fun way.

There will be different booths where people can ask questions and play games to learn about how the brain works.

There will be information on how to prevent brain injuries and how to identify and reduce risk factors of stroke. There will also be information about treatments and resources available in the area for both issues.

Heather Turner, a stroke program coordinator at UVA said, “I think this is a great opportunity for the community to get information about preventing both brain injury and stroke as well as people who have had a brain injury or stroke, providing them with resources that would help them deal with their injury or stroke."

The event is Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion. It is free and open to the public.
