Title: Background and findings of the CARE (Concussion Assessment, Research and Education) Consortium

Date: Monday, November 18, 2019
Time: 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
Location: MDCL 1110, McMaster University


Abstract:
In 2014, the NCAA and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) signed a cooperative agreement, forming the Grand Alliance, to investigate the acute effects of concussion among collegiate athletes and military service academy members.  The two arms of the Grand Alliance centered on concussion education (Mind Matters) and research (Concussion Assessment, Research and Education [CARE] Consortium).  The CARE Consortium was designed to address gaps in the medical literature with a focus on understanding the natural history of concussion; elucidating the neurobiology of concussion; and evaluating the role of neuroimaging biomarkers, fluid biomarkers, and genotype in injury risk and outcomes. This presentation will discuss the overall structure and early findings from the largest prospective study on sport concussion ever conducted.

Registration is required for this event. Please RSVP at the ARiEAL Eventbrite Page by Monday, November 11, 2019.
