2022.10.13 – Monitoring Brain Health in Individuals Exposed to Repetitive Head Impacts: Lessons Learned from Radiation Safety (Live Webinar)

A Mitchell Rosenthal Memorial Research live webinar featuring Jeffrey J. Bazarian, M.D. MPH. Airs live at 3 p.m. ET October 13, 2022. Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. ET October 12, 2022.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. ET October 12, 2022. If you purchase a registration, you will receive an email with attendance instructions the day the webinar airs. Please make sure to whitelist @biausa.org to ensure you receive the instructions.

Concern over the effect of repetitive head impacts sustained in sports and combat operations on long-term brain health has stimulated discussion on how to best mitigate these long-term effects. The history of radiation safety provides an instructive example of how emerging scientific knowledge of health risks were integrated with societal standards for acceptable risk to derive actionable, clinically relevant policies to mitigate long-term health effects.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide examples of the scientific evidence demonstrating short and long-term risks of exposure to repetitive head impacts.
  • Discuss societal standards for acceptable risk.
  • Compare and contrast the history of radiation safety to the history of safety in the context of repetitive head impacts.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.

Speaker Bios:

Jeffrey Bazarian, M.D., MPH, is a Professor of Emergency Medicine and Neurology at the University of Rochester. He is a graduate of Brown University and the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine but practiced Emergency Medicine exclusively for 22 years until 2012. In 2010, Dr. Bazarian joined the University of Rochester Sports Concussion Clinic, providing outpatient concussion care to area high school and collegiate athletes. Dr. Bazarian’s research is focused on developing neuroimaging and blood-based biomarkers of axonal injury after concussion and repetitive head hits, and the pathophysiologic mechanisms of recovery.
