Long Term Impacts of Concussion
and Repetitive Subconcussive Trauma
(with 2nd Annual Neuro Huddle)
Queen’s Conference Center
510 S. Beretania Street, Honolulu HI 96813
We are proud to be hosting our first Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Conference 2016: Long Term Impacts of Concussion and Repetitive Subconcussive Trauma on January 28-29, 2016. This 2-day conference will include the 2nd Annual Neuro Huddle to focus on the long term impacts of concussion to develop public awareness regarding CTE in sports related trauma and injuries. Neuropathologically confirmed CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain that can be found in athletes and other people with histories of repetitive brain trauma, which include subconcussive hits to the head.
As CTE is a relatively new topic globally, our 2-day conference and Neuro Huddle is specially designed to educate physicians and health professionals in the medical community as well as provide relevant information to coaches, trainers, teachers, and parents in the community. Day 1 is designated primarily as a medical conference, while Day 2 will host the 2nd Annual Neuro Huddle interactive presentations.
This conference will introduce updated professional guidelines from exposure risks and prevention and allow for participation in discussion from different aspects of the community. In addition, our speakers will provide support and resources for patients or families with concerns on trauma care from sports related injuries.
