Civic Science Round-tables: Dialogues on Sports-Related Brain Injury

This event has ended. We hope to see you at a future event. See upcoming events here: https://www.massbioed.org/events

lThis Event is at capacity.

Join us for an open dialogue where you can discuss your experiences and concerns around sports-related brain injuries and how your perspective informs important choices that you may be facing. This event will be a chance for student athletes, teens, young adults, science experts, family members and others, to share experiences on sports-related brain injuries and support their ability to make well-informed decisions as they consider the many factors that influence their participation in sports activities. This event is focused on  young adults, including students and teenagers, but teachers, parents, coaches and other school administrators, are welcome to attend. Registration is required. 

The goals of this Roundtable dialogue are to: 

  1. Engage participants in well-informed, evidence-based discussions that will bring diverse values, opinions and beliefs into the conversation on sports-related brain injury.
  2. Deepen an understanding of the scientific evidence, social values and personal experience that are important in making important decisions about sports-related brain injury.
  3. To create an environment for an exchange of ideas through inclusive dialogue that connects science to daily choices and decisions.
