Concussion and Winter Sports

Feb. 11, 2016; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Nearly four million Americans are affected by sport or recreational traumatic brain injuries annually. Winter sports (e.g., ice hockey, skiing, sledding) are often fast-paced, high-velocity activities that can lead to serious injury including concussion, or mild traumatic brain injury. Surprisingly, head injuries in winter sports have not been studied as frequently as those in football or soccer. The most studied winter sport is ice hockey. This webinar will provide an overview of winter sports injury with an emphasis on ice hockey research designed to understand injury mechanisms, dispel concussion myths, and present novel opportunities for preventing injury.

Program Evaluation at the Health Resources and Services Administration
