Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will review the fundamental issues associated with traumatic brain injury, look at what the underlying concussion patterns are, understand the claim activity that may influence future litigation and learn about best practices to support mitigation efforts in this area. We will also review recent approval to allow unionization of football players at Northwestern University and discuss potential ramifications of this decision.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:
 Have a solid understanding of TBI and concussions and the potential litigation that stems from such accidents.
 Have a better understanding of the medical treatment options available and the best practices that must be followed to mitigate the injury and overall exposure to the university.
 Understand the potential for student athletes to unionize and the resulting ramifications going forward for both the players and the university.
