Outreach & Engagement
John Leddy (University of Buffalo) will describe aspects of the Physiology of Concussion with respect to The Autonomic Nervous System and Cerebral Blood Flow Regulation, the role of exercise tolerance testing in the prescription of individualized sub-threshold aerobic exercise for the treatment of concussion and persistent post-concussive symptoms (PPCS), and how the principle of “exercise intolerance” is used in the treatment of mTBI/concussion.
The University of Michigan Concussion Center and Detroit Public Schools Community District have partnered to develop a concussion toolkit to improve concussion prevention, identification and care for student-athletes.
Please join the U-M Concussion Center on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at 3:30pm for a virtual panel discussion focusing on the long-term impact of concussions. There is growing concern and attention around the long-term neurological health of those sustaining a concussion and/or head impact exposure. The panel will discuss and answer questions on the state of the science, indicating what is known and what has yet to be learned. The discussion will be hosted by Steve Broglio, director of the U-M Concussion Center.
