Learning Objectives Attendees Should Achieve:
1. Attendees will be able to gain insight into the values of collegiate student athletes surrounding concussion and recognize some of the pressures influencing concussion recovery and reporting.
2. Attendees will understand current literature and statistics surrounding concussion education and reporting.
3. Attendees will experience a newly developed online platform for concussion education.


Summary of Event: (500 Character Count Max)
There is a lack of awareness surrounding the perceptions of student athlete concussion reporting and recovery processes, including the internal and external pressures which drive the return to play and learn. The need to address student athlete role disruption and safe return to play and learn in a holistic manner is needed. A newly developed educational online series highlighting the individualized experiences of concussion symptomology and recovery will be shared.
