As a practicing clinician, he gives clinical direction and feedback to project creation and data collection as it pertains to the treatment and management of sports-related mTBI. This collaboration has lead to an expansion of the depth and breadth of modalities used to diagnose/evaluate subjects recovering from mTBI. This multi-modal approach is critical in evaluating sub-clinical abnormalities and providing data points towards a comprehensive approach in the treatment and management of athletes recovering from sports related brain injury.
