Sports Related Concussions and Brain Injury

Presenter: Mark Mintz, MD - The Center for Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Health

Concussions are a form of traumatic brain injury that can affect cognitive functioning (mental processes of thinking, reasoning, learning, remembering, problem-solving and creativity) and behavior. Many children and young adults experience significant psychological stress from their injuries. Dr. Mintz will discuss interventions for concussions, the risks of recurrent concussions, and how to help individuals who are suffering from residual problems from concussions to maximize their functioning in the home, school, work and community environments.
