Get’cha Head in the Game: Tackling Sports Concussion

Saturday 31 March

In the past decade concussion has become the major issue facing contact sport. Recognition that a degenerative brain disease, previously thought exclusive to boxers, was also affecting athletes from other sports has led to increasing concern about effects of brain injuries.

Learn about Scotland’s leading efforts in sport, medicine and science from an expert panel including Dr William Stewart; BBC Scotland broadcaster Jamie Lyall; neuropsychiatrist Dr Alan Carson; Nuala Deans of the British Paralympic Association; former Scotland international rugby player Dr Geoff Cross and the concussion campaigner Peter Robinson.

 

Presented by University of Glasgow
