New York Sports Concussion Program

On March 22nd, the Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) will be presenting a full day program entitled: Concussion in Sports: What Everybody Needs to Know

I am pleased to participate in this important program and will be speaking from 1045-11:30.  My topic is entitled, Legal and Policy Issues in Sports Concussion Management and will review legislation being considered across the country as well as the policy issues surrounding this important topic.

The key note speaker for the conference is Chris Nowinski, Co-Founder and President of the Sports Legacy Institute. He is a renowned voice in the field of concussion research and advocacy for the prevention and treatment of sports related traumatic brain injuries. 

The program is designed to provide participants with the practical information needed to recognize, treat and prevent sports-related brain injures.  Parents, student athletes, members of school athletic programs, school nurses, neuropsychologists and physicians are all urged to attend.

The program is scheduled to take place from 9: 45 am until 4:00 pm at the Manhattan campus of St. John's University, Saval Auditorium, 101 Murray Street.
