What Is BRAINWeekEnd?
To extend the reach of our CNS education, we are launching the BRAINWeekEnd Regional Conference series, beginning in October. These live, in-person events will speak to conditions such as dementia, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis, and stroke, all of which require a more inclusive approach to continuing medical education.
With the success of our inaugural live virtual meeting, we are pleased to announce even more opportunities to learn with BRAINWeek.
Regional Conference Series
BRAINWeekEnd events are an extension of the live virtual conference, launched in May. They are composed of 1- and 2-day regional conferences offering 6.0-12.0 CE/credit hours.

MEETING THE INCREASED DEMAND FOR MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT DURING COVID-19
The catastrophic health effects of the coronavirus pandemic are well established, as illustrated by the more than 32 million known cases and over 570,000 COVID-19-related deaths in the United States to date. What has also become more apparent is the immense psychological impact. As a result of the pandemic, much of society is experiencing increased stress in relation to numerous psychosocial factors. This session speaks to the need for increased mental health resources to cope with anxiety and fear about contracting the virus, increased social isolation, separation from family, job loss, economic uncertainty, and grieving the loss of a loved one to the disease.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Allergan.
“The current estimated annual cost to American society of just nine of the most common neurological diseases is staggering, totaling $789 billion. These conditions include Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, low back pain, stroke, traumatic brain injury, migraine, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and Parkinson’s disease.”
