EVENT POSTPONED: It is with regret that we have decided to postpone our remaining Brain Awareness Month events due to the continuing outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus. All our remaining events throughout March and April are currently postponed until further notice.
We know that many people were looking forward to these presentations from researchers that the Neurological Foundation has been able to fund through the donations of so many of our supporters. We hope to be able to advise of plans for new events in the near future.
In the interim, we will be working to film as many presentations as possible and bring these to you online so that we can continue to share the latest neurological research updates with you. You can sign up to our email newsletter to be updated with the latest news and videos here: https://neurological.org.nz/email-sign-up.
Thank you for your understanding.
