Glasgow Brain Health Awareness Day

Glasgow Convention Bureau supports prestigious international conference BRAIN and BRAIN PET to bring Brain Health Awareness Day to Glasgow's city centre.

At the end of May, Glasgow hosted ‘BRAIN and BRAIN PET 2022’, a prestigious international conference focusing on brain health and function.

Glasgow Convention Bureau worked with the organisers to help take the subject matter beyond the walls of the conference venue and into the local community. The team connected the organisers with Brain Health Scotland; Glasgow City Council’s Education team; Network Rail and Buchanan Galleries to arrange a variety of events aimed at helping people to better understand how making healthy choices affects our brain.

The team recently worked with artist and neurologist Dr Lizzie Burns and young people from 6 Glasgow schools to create models representing brain health. A Glasgow Brain Health Awareness Day at Buchanan Galleries and Glasgow Central Station featured brain health activities for families of all ages, including the chance to ‘build-a-brain’ and make your own neurons. At Glasgow Central Station there was a giant inflatable brain that locals can walk inside, creating a fun way to engage and inform the public.

The day was supported by Brain Health Scotland and Alzheimer’s Scotland.
