Social activities

Fetal i+D conducts periodically several actions that involve direct participation of patients and families, with the aim of bringing closer the research of Cerebra’s project to the general public and society.

FETAL I+D RUN HALF MARATHON OF BARCELONA FOR CEREBRA

Researchers of Fetal i+D took on the challenge of running the Half Marathon of Barcelona on Sunday February 12th. This event was a great opportunity for us to raise awareness for Cerebra who support the families and children with brain conditions, as well as our research that focuses on diagnosing and treating fetuses with neurodevelopmental risks.

The runners were very proud to be a part of this action and support the families and children they usually see in their clinics, in a different way.

Cerebra half marathon


During 2014, the research team held a social event in Barcelona, following the traditional Family Event conferences that we have been addressing to families yearly since 2008. In this occasion, the conference took place in May 2014 under the title “Health begins before birth”. The conference was addressed to families and patients participating in our projects.

The event focused on the impact of nutrition during pregnancy and early life of the baby, and we combined the participation of experts in medicine, nutrition and cooking that provided the keys to help future mothers and families during this stage of life. During this conference, we also announce the presentation of the inatal book “40 recetas para 40 semanas de embarazo”.
