‘Preventing Neurological and Chronic Pain Disorders’ is the theme of the upcoming meeting of the Member of the European Parliament Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain.
The event will be hosted by Romanian MEP Damian Draghici. It will explore why we should and how we can prevent the onset, and worsening, of brain and pain disorders.
The agenda includes presentations on the importance of health promotion in raising awareness of common risk factors (e.g. obesity, poor nutrition, smoking, sedentary lifestyles, etc.). It will also cover how EU legislation can be applied to help prevent these disorders, and enable self-management.
There will a discussion and debate session to end the event. So please come along and contribute if you have an interest/expertise in this topic.
