Is it time to change the way we think about concussions?

Mild traumatic brain injuries are among the most common neurological conditions, afflicting up to 3.8 million Americans a year, according to some estimates. And yet there is a pressing need for more education and awareness of the symptoms and the important interventions required following a concussion.

Alumni, friends and students are invited to join us as we bring together two McGill experts and New York's own Mike Richter, former New York Ranger and National Hockey League all-star, for a timely discussion about the diagnosis and long-term effects of concussions, and how McGill's research is changing the way we think about brain injuries.


Dr. Angela Genge, MedResident'93, Director of the ALS Clinical Research program and Clinical Research Unit at McGill's Montreal Neurological Institute.

Dr. Alain Ptito, BA'75, Neuropsychologist and Director, Department of Psychology, McGill University Health Centre and Professor, Neurology/Neurosurgery, McGill University and Montreal Neurological Institute.

Mike Richter, former New York Rangers goaltender, Stanley Cup winner and U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame member.

Moderator: Jason Chung, BA'06, BCL/LLB'14, Senior Research Scholar, NYU School of Professional Studies, NYU Sports and Society
