The PINKconcussions International Summit on Female Concussion and TBI


International civilian and military medical experts will review current sex-based data on brain injury research from sports, domestic violence and military service. The summit is co-hosted by Georgetown University Medical Center.

The purpose of this summit is to discuss the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of concussion in females based on current science and research of how females differ from males. From the consensus of faculty and select participants, work sessions will develop a paper with recommendations on what gender-specific clinical practices and safety protocols should be researched and/or implemented to best treat females with concussions.
