Due to the rise in awareness about sports concussions in recent years, a medical specialty society began holding an annual conference dedicated to prevention and treatment. The planning committee included experts in clinical neurology research, athletes who had experienced sports concussions, and coaches from all levels of competition from youth to professional athletes. During the conference, one of the professional athletes and several coaches participated in a panel sharing their first-hand experience about the lifelong effects of concussions on athletes’ physical, mental, and emotional health.
