Delhi,Health/Medicine, Sat, 31 Mar 2012 IANS

New Delhi, March 31 (IANS) The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here will observe a brain awareness week, starting April 9, which will have a series of public awareness lectures on headache, migraine, stroke, prevention of head injury and backache among other ailments.


"The awareness about diseases associated with the brain is very low. The idea is to educate people in easy language on prevention and following early signs of brain-related diseases," a senior doctor from the AIIMS neurosurgery department said Saturday.


"What one assumes to be just headache could actually be signs of something severe. So a lot depends on awareness," the doctor added.


The 'brain awareness week' poster put across the sprawling AIIMS campus mentions a series of lectures between 1.30 p.m. to 3 p.m. April 9 at the AIIMS auditorium. The event is in collaboration with the National Brain Research Centre, Manesar.


"Our target audience is general public, students, paramedical staff, nurses and doctors. There is no entry fee for attending lectures," the doctor added.
