Brain Day Presentations

Several FMPS classes have had the opportunity to take part in special brain day presentations offered by medical students at the University of Ottawa. These presentations outlined the anatomy of the brain and the importance of brain function on the whole body. The students were able to engage in hands-on activities that gave them an understanding of how the brain sends messages to the rest the body. These med students highlighted the fact that once neurons in the brain were injured, they could not regenerate and therefore made it clear that wearing a helmet during sports such as riding a bicycle and skate boarding were absolutely necessary. Students had the opportunity to touch jelly moulded brains to show how delicate brain matter is and why it is so important to protect the most important part of our body! We also learned about the 2 V 1 RULE to ensure the proper fit for helmets! Please see the picture below and check your child’s helmet this weekend.
