The theme is Beyond Concussion…The New Normal & After Effects.

In addition to his clinical training, he also was a T32 NIH Research Fellow with a focus in neuro-oncology and spinal cord injury. He conducted translational research in spinal cord injury and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s’ disease) at Emory University.
