Marquette Presents: Concussion--Societal Impact of Sports-related Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. WALK-IN REGISTRATIONS ARE WELCOME.

Hosted by the Marquette University College of Health Sciences
January 28, 2013

With media accounts of sports-related concussion appearing with alarming regularity, many concerns have arisen among athletes, coaches, parents, and the medical community. What are the long-term effects of concussion? How can it best be determined if a concussion has occurred? What is the impact on the developing brain? What can be done to prevent one?

These questions and more will be addressed by a panel of experts at Marquette University College of Health Sciences’ next breakfast forum. Join Marquette alumni, parents, students and community members for a multifaceted and in‑depth exploration of the many issues around sports-related concussions.

Expert panelists include:

Michael McCrea, Ph.D., professor of neurosurgery and neurology and director of
brain injury research, Medical College of Wisconsin; research neuropsychologist,
Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center

George E. Koonce, Jr., Ph.D., director of development, Marquette University, and
former NFL linebacker and member of the NFL’s Player Engagement Advisory Board
