The seminar included area professionals working together as an expert panel and students of various health professions. The group came together to share the most recent information on the treatment and prevention of injuries leading to concussions. Students gained valuable insight from the panel of experts and worked on applying the new knowledge in small group case study discussions. Each small group consisted of members of each discipline involved and allowed students to embrace the strengths of their colleagues. The event concluded with a expert panel Q&A session to integrate the days findings with recent clinical thinking and advice for future endeavors.
