Off To Speak (UPDATE)


UPDATE (Sunday):  What a wonderful day, some GREAT people have some great information to share, I hope to bring you a recap tomorrow before or after travel…

==========

Today I am traveling back home, well my former home, Denver for a speaking engagement.  The event is the national ThinkFirst annual meeting, and I will be on a panel discussing concussions.  I feel very honored to be speaking to a distinguished audience and hope that I have something to offer all of them.

After the speaking engagement I have been invited to the American Academy of Neurological Surgeon’s opening gala for their annual meeting, also in Denver.  This will be exciting to be mingling amongst people 7,000 times smarter than I; maybe I can get smarter by osmosis?  hahaha

I will be taking notes and attempt to give a recap next week.  If anyone that reads this is going to be in attendance, drop me an email and we can converse.  My panel discussion begins at 9:45am on Sunday.

    Dustin,
    Don’t forget the “Glass Jaw”. Preventing the first concussion should be the focus. Not just second impact syndrome.

      Yup, the “glass jaw” is to due rotational forces applied to the jaw that translate to the brain, nothing to do with mandible slamming into TMJ… Thanks for the reminder!
