  • July 10 DCoE Webinar Focuses on Concussion and Football Helmets

    Football helmets may "work," but what does that really mean in terms of concussions? Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) can gain insight into the effectiveness of equipment in reducing concussion incidence while getting information on the pathophysiology of the injury through a free webinar from the US Department of Defense Centers of Excellence (DCoE).

    The 90-minute program is set for July 10, 1:00–2:30 pm ET, and will cover the latest consensus statements about helmets and concussion prevention, the biomechanics and pathophysiology of concussion, the role of acceleration information in characterizing brain injury risk, and the ways in which rule changes and better equipment could reduce risk of brain injury.

    Presenters include Kristy Arbogast, PhD, pediatrics co-scientific director for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention; Donald Marion, MD, MSc, of the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center; and Steven Rowson, PhD, assistant research professor at the Virginia Tech School of Biomedical Engineering.

    Webinar participants can register in advance or on the day of the presentation.
