6th Annual Intermountain Brain Injury Conference

March 23, 2012

Join us March 23, 2012 for the 6th Annual Intermountain Brain Injury Conference: Sports and Activity-Related Brain Injuries. We are pleased to have Dr. Gary Solomon from Vanderbilt University as this year’s Keynote Speaker. Dr. Solomon is the Team Neuropsychologist for the Nashville Predators and the Consulting Neuropsychologist for the Tennessee Titans. He will be speaking on “Sports Concussion: From Behavior to Biochemistry”, a topic that has recently been drawing national attention.

Also joining us will be Jennifer Rayman of Project BRAIN, a non-profit organization designed to provide training and resources to healthcare professionals, educators, coaches, and others who are working with students with traumatic brain injuries. Ms. Rayman will be sharing new information and resources that are just now becoming available regarding brain injuries and concussions.

We will also look forward to hearing from a helmet manufacturing company discussing the biochemical forces of head injury and the role of helmets in injury reduction. We hope you will join us for this very informative conference.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and ASHA credits are available as well.

 

Concussion in Sports

Fast Facts

  • A concussion is a brain injury and all are serious.
  • Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.
  • Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.

What is a Concussion?

volleyball players

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Online training

Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. So, all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs.
