[view original post]

World Brain Day is commemorated on July 22 to raise awareness about the importance of taking care of the body’s most complex vital organ.

The World Federation of Neurology (WFN) was founded on July 22, 1957. Since then, every year, the day is dedicated to understanding the importance of brain health and the theme for this year’s celebration is Brain Health for All.

“Brain health for all has never been more imperative,” Prof. Grisold, President of WFN said. To achieve the goal, the agency calls for “quality neurology”, “implementation of national health policies to prevent brain disorders” and “appropriate and timely diagnosis, treatment, and care for everyone.”

WFN has urged people to use social media to discuss and share about brain health using these hashtags — #WorldBrainDay, #WBD2022 and #BrainHeathforAll.
