Alumni Weekend Clinic Day 2015

Milwaukee, WI US
May 2, 2015

Health care is poised to undergo dramatic change.  We will explore the disruptive innovative forces in health care and their potential impact on care delivery.

Sport related concussion is now recognized as a major public health issue in the U.S. and worldwide.  Major advances have been made in the science of concussion over the past two decades.  These discoveries now drive evidence-based approaches to the clinical management of athletes affected by concussion at all competitive levels.  We will summarize the recent research advances and discuss the clinical implication, along with future research directions.
