Research Review: Concussion



We are back with our first episode of 2022. Omicron has been running rampant throughout the world. It’s been a busy month away from the podcast for me. The PRiSM meeting is now underway. Unfortunately, I am under work-related travel restrictions so I am unable to join my colleagues in person, but I was fortunate enough to grab a few from our Concussion Research Interest Group to discuss some recent research studies in the world of concussion. It’s time for another research review with two of my widely respected colleagues in pediatric sports medicine.
