Title: Guarding Brain Performance: Build Resilience On & Off the Field
Thursday, March 22 at 6:30-8 PM
Enjoy an interactive panel discussion and Q&A representing multiple perspectives around concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), moderated by Dr. Dan Krawczyk, Center for BrainHealth Deputy Director and TBI researcher, Dr. Lori Cook, Director of Clinical Research at the Center for BrainHealth and Shane Miller, MD, Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Pediatrics at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Special guests will include former Dallas Cowboys player Chad Hennings and Johnny Ringo, Athletic Director at Highland Park High School.
In many ways, the growing fear of concussion is overtaking the valuable information to be gleaned from ongoing science. Playing sports is a powerful, life-enhancing activity that provides important emotional and academic benefits for youth, and efforts must continue to keep making sports safer and minimize the risk of repeated concussion. Our panelists will discuss the latest evidence and practices as well as proactive approaches to promote brain health and resilience in our athletes across the lifespan. We hope you will join us for this important and informative evening.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online.
The Brain Performance Institute is located adjacent to the Center for BrainHealth near Mockingbird Lane and Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas.
