The NMHI organized the first annual round-table public lecture for Brain Awareness Week in 2014. The invited panel of experts discussed the impact of traumatic brain injury. The distinguished speakers included:
- Dr. Garnet Cummings, executive director of the Brain Care Centre
- Dr. Ibolja Cernak, chair of Military and Veterans’ Clinical Rehabilitation Research and professor in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Alberta
- Dr. Dhiren Naidu, team physician with the Edmonton Oilers, Edmonton Eskimos and Golden Bears football team
- Mr. Ryan King, #53 long snapper for the Edmonton Eskimos
This event provided the opportunity to gather and inform students, academics and the public on what is being done in our community in a very relevant and significant area of neuroscience. It also provided an interactive atmosphere in which participants had an informative question and answer period.
