2nd Annual Brain Awareness Day for Pasadena Residents on Saturday, April 30

Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), Pasadena’s only dedicated medical research institute, will host its 2nd Annual Brain Awareness Day event from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 30. The free event is being hosted at the McKinley Elementary School Auditorium located at 325 S. Oak Knoll Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. This year’s event is focused on traumatic brain injury, especially in younger people. The program will start with an overview of the work on mild traumatic brain injury going on at HMRI, and a description of the known risk factors for traumatic brain injury and its link to later dementias. A panel of experts will use the Frontline documentary "League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis" as a point of reference for the public’s understanding of traumatic brain injury. Eligible Pasadena public school student athletes will be able to enroll in HMRI’s traumatic brain injury monitoring program and obtain appointments for complimentary brain imaging scans.
