🧠🎙Welcome to SEASON 3 of Concussion Corner!!! 🥼📻
Concussion Corner is your trusted resource for interdisciplinary conversations related to all things concussion-related in healthcare, advocacy, and sport.
🏈 🚲⚽️🏒Since 2011, Virginia Tech researchers have been providing unbiased helmet ratings that allow consumers to make informed decisions when purchasing helmets. The helmet ratings are the culmination of over a decade of research identifying which helmets best reduce concussion risk. This work is done as part of Virginia Tech’s service mission and is 100% independent of any funding or influence from helmet manufacturers. Please visit the Virginia Tech helmet lab website at bit.ly/VirginiaTechHelmets and spread the word to aide in lowering concussion risk in your community 🏇⚾️🥎
