Age of First Exposure to Collision Sports and Neurological Health
Thomas Buckley, Ed.D, ATC discussed repetitive head impacts, age of first exposure, and how to talk about risk with athletes.
Dr. Buckley is an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology as well as the Biomechanics and Movement Science (BIOMS) program at the University of Delaware. Check out his research!
Concussion and Subsequent Musculoskeletal Injury: Current Insights and Future Directions
Join us as Jessie Oldham, PhD discusses our current understanding of risk of musculoskeletal injuries post-concussion.
Dr. Oldham is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. Check out her research!
Clinically Feasible Rehabilitation Approaches to Improve Outcomes After Concussion
Join us as David Howell, PhD, ATC discusses exercise and neurorehabilitation post-concussion.
Dr. Howell is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedics as well as the Lead Researcher of the Sports Medicine Center at the Children's Hospital Colorado. Check out his research!
Insights on concussion incidence and lifespan health status in female athletes
Join us as Avinash Chandran, PhD, gives insights on concussions in female athletes.
Dr. Chandran is the Director of the NCAA Injury Surveillance Program at the Datalys Center for Sports Injury Research and Prevention, as well as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Check out his research!
Head Impact Biomechanics: From Modeling to Clinical Application
Join us for a special edition webinar in which we collaborate with EaRLY TBI to highlight projects from early career researchers!
Driving After Concussion: The Quest for Evidence Based Guidelines
Join us as Julianne Schmidt, PhD, ATC discusses what we know about driving deficits after a concussion and how it impacts clinical care.
Dr. Julianne Schmidt is an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Georgia. She has served as the co-director of the UGA Concussion Research Laboratory and Biomechanics Laboratory since 2013. Check out her research!
Not just athletes: why does concussion reporting matter for everyone?
Join us as Dr. D'Lauro gives us perspective on athletes and non-athletes from his work with the Air Force Academy, and discusses why everyone can benefit from better concussion reporting. He will describe how brain health is not just a medical issue, but one of social environment – which means we can change it for the better.
Dr. D’Lauro is a Professor in the Department of Behavioral Science and Leadership at the US Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado Springs, CO and is the director of the USAFA Concussion Lab. Check out his research!
Optimizing Acute Concussion Assessment: Insights from Predictive Analytics
Join us as Dr. Garcia discusses what predictive analytics has taught us about which concussion screening tools are most valuable for acute concussion assessment.
Dr. Garcia is an Assistant Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. Check out his research!
The Relationship Between Repetitive Head Impact Exposure and Early- to Mid-Adulthood Neurophysiological Functioning
Join us as Dr. Hunzinger discusses relationships between age of first exposure, career duration, and various levels of repetitive head impact exposures on patient reported outcomes and single and dual-task gait in young- to middle-aged adults..
Dr. Hunzinger recently completed her PhD in Biomechanics at the University of Delaware. She currently works as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. Her current research focuses on TBI, cognitive trajectory, and physical functioning in older adults.
Strategies for returning university students back to class after concussion: current recommendations and future considerations.
Join us as Dr. Memmini highlights current work regarding post-concussion return-to-learn management specific to the university setting, followed by a brief discussion on the need for incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion in future concussion research.
Dr. Memmini is a licensed athletic trainer and recent graduate of the University of Michigan PhD in Movement Science Program. In July, she will begin as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health, Exercise, & Sports Sciences at the University of New Mexico, where she plans to further develop and assess inclusive pedagogical practices to assist university students returning to learn after concussion.
