Concussion Education Webinar Series

Headway will be hosting a series of FREE webinars interviewing a number of health professionals about concussions beginning in August and continuing through the fall. We plan to discuss everything from the science behind the injury itself to prevention strategies, treatments, diagnostic tools, and how to optimize your overall brain health. 

Headway believes that educating the general public is key to improving concussion management. We hope that coaches, athletes, clinicians, parents and patients will use these opportunities to learn more about concussions directly from the experts.
