Day One Current Landscape of Concussion Research
How is new research changing the way we diagnose and treat concussions? How do men and women experience concussions differently? How does the timing of physical therapy affect recovery? And how does an emphasis on sports psychology improve the emotional well-being and physical performance of student athletes?
Experts from across the country bring their experience and analysis to the table in this comprehensive examination of the traumatic brain injury.
Featuring: Steven P. Broglio, PhD, ATC, and Thomas W. McAllister, MD, investigators in the NCAA and U.S. Department of Defense’s Concussion Assessment, Research and Education (CARE) Consortium. The consortium is the largest-ever prospective study on sport concussion, examining an estimated 35,000 student athletes from 30 universities. Drs. Broglio and McAllister lend their expertise in genetics and imaging to a larger panel of experts discussing the state of concussion research today.
