Concussion is a major health crisis facing the public.

"It has become clear that repetitive brain injury, even at relatively low energy levels, is a source of brain trauma that faces our youth, men and women, and elderly - from playing sports, to automobile collisions or falls, to the battlefield - there is a critical need to prevent and detect the neurological effects of these injuries." - Jay Alberts, PhD, Director, Concussion Center, Cleveland Clinic.

Concussion 2015 took place June 23-24, 2015 at the Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland, Ohio, where national leaders came together to discuss the advances of medical science in the detection, prevention and treatment of concussion. Over 600 people from around the globe attended the two day event and 70-98 people viewed the live webcast on the two respective days. This unique program explained the fundamentals of concussion and helped bring an appreciation of what new approaches to look forward to. Perhaps the most important and long lasting contribution of the meeting will be the new discoveries that will inevitably arise from this encounter.

Further more the event was covered by the media in some 26 different broadcasts and articles. Please see our For The Media page for more information.
