SPEAD Brain Emergency Support Workshop 2023

organised by Hong Kong Student Association of Neuroscience 

We are grateful to the dedicated Organizing Committee of the SPEAD Brain Emergency Support Workshop 2023, organised by the Hong Kong Student Association of Neuroscience, for inviting us to raise awareness about the needs of persons with epilepsy and stroke survivors. On February 19, 2022, at the LKS Faculty of Medicine of HKU, Sassoon Road, we shared our insights on the 'Psychosocial Impact of Epilepsy and Stroke' to around 170 Form 4 and Form 5 secondary school students aspiring to study medicine, biomedical science, or psychology in the future. About 60 students from HKU and CUHK, who were organizing committee members and helpers for group interactions, also attended.

During the event, 20 representatives from the Hong Kong Epilepsy Association and the Hong Kong Stroke Association, who were patients and caregivers of self-help groups for epilepsy and stroke, shared their experiences of living with and coping with their chronic illnesses. These interactive sessions provided insights and reflections for students on their potential experiences in clinical work in the future.

We are encouraged by this meaningful event and hope to inspire more young generations to pursue careers in the helping professions. We look forward to we can making a positive impact on the lives of those affected by epilepsy, stroke, and other neurological disorders in Hong Kong, and co-creating a healthy and sustainable society for all.
