What started the Ultimate Concussion Conference?
Did you know that approximately 2.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury annually with more than 50,000 dying? How can we sit still when it’s our responsibility to speak up, to inspire change, to give hope and to build a better future?
Friends for many years, Dr. Teig and Mr. Schneider saw a need to have a meaningful conversation about concussion. They had a vision of bringing experts to their market to share the latest research, dispel outdated myths, have an honest conversation backed by neuroscience and bring concussion victims, their families, coaches, educators, medical pros and the community into one place. Join the change-makers this October to become a part of the solution.
