Partners in Research Webinar: Concussions

Among children and youth (10-18 years) who visit an emergency department for a sports-related head injury, 39% are diagnosed with concussions, while a further 24% are possible concussions. The Government of Canada recognizes concussions in sports as a public health issue because of their frequency and their potential short- and long-term consequences.

On this PIR Live Event Dr. Paolo Sanzo from Lakehead University join us to discuss the signs and symptoms associated with concussions and how to examine and treat a concussion and/or persistent concussion symptoms. Dr. Sanzo will highlight some of his research projects related to concussions and introduce us to his lab space, showcasing the specialized equipment used in those projects.

Join us to ask your questions and get answers LIVE! Questions can be submitted live within the webinar window or emailed in advance to liveevent@pirweb.org

This webinar is intended for grades 7-12.
The duration of this webinar will be approximately 30-35 minutes.
