Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center Hosts Concussion Summit

October 1, 2013

Mayo Clinic’s Sports Medicine Center is hosting
Ice Hockey Summit II: Action on Concussion Oct. 8–9, 2013.

Co-director at the Sports Medicine Center, Michael Stuart, M.D., says, “Our sport increasingly has bigger, stronger athletes at all levels, and we must do what we can to diagnose and treat concussion and, more important, reduce instances of traumatic brain injury.” The summit is bringing together top scientists, trainers, coaches, officials, retired professional players and manufacturers from across the United States, Canada and Europe to discuss concussion-related issues, including the science of concussion, impact on youth athletes and hockey community response. While the focus is primarily on ice hockey, concussion-related topics will apply to all sports.
