The Concussion Health Summit Sessions bring together an influential array of experts, practitioners, and innovators from a range of specialties who will discuss the latest knowledge and technology regarding diagnosing and treating concussions.
Through on-demand talks and live Q&As, recognized experts, caring clinicians, and industry leaders focus on patient-centric clinical guidelines that most effectively apply the latest evidence-based science in a best practices manner in concussion management.

At the conclusion of the sessions, you will be able to:
- Understand the role of history in concussion management regarded from an earlier and more traditional perspective to the contemporary point of view to aid in the development of better strategies in the future.
- Utilize exercise intolerance as an objective biomarker of the physiological dysfunction after sport-related concussion.
- Recognize other potential symptoms generators than exercise intolerance (e.g., cervical, vestibular, oculomotor, mood, or migraine disorder) that could be contributing factors to a delayed recovery post-concussion.
- Recognize new approaches in headache management in the concussion athlete.
- Understand the impact of head trauma on both focal and ambient processes that result in visual and balance impairments.
- Recognize the role of neuro-optometric rehabilitation as an effective tool to address visual dysfunction post head trauma.
- Recognize existing ascending levels of educational support for students with a concussion as they return to school to promote robust and positive outcomes.
- Recognize the benefit of a new concussion assessment tool that evaluates more specific symptoms that may reflect clinical profiles and inform better clinical care following head trauma.
- Identify rehabilitation strategies to treat vestibular and ocular motor deficits post-concussion.
- Recognize basic intervention strategies for the cervical spine and how and when to initiate treatment post-concussion.
- Identify specific clinical tests to utilize following a head and neck pathomechanical event to differentiate between symptoms due to a concussion and cervical injury.
- Recognize the various clinical trajectories post head trauma and how to implement findings into targeted therapies to address persistent symptoms after concussion
