Loughborough University - We are making every step count this February

This February, We are taking part in BrainWalk and walking, jogging or running as far as we can to improve my own health and wellbeing and help save lives! 

Encephalitis is a neurological condition that can be devastating. Here are five facts you may not know: 


1. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain.

2. It is caused by an infection or through the immune system attacking the brain.

3. Anyone can be affected by encephalitis – no matter their age, gender or ethnicity.

4. It has a high death rate and survivors are often left with an acquired brain injury and life-changing consequences.

5. It is more common in many countries than motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, bacterial meningitis and cerebral palsy.

One person is diagnosed with encephalitis every minute across the world, and life for them and their loved ones will never be the same again.
