Thank you for attending the Concussion in Sport Symposium 2022!
This year’s event put a spotlight on mental health and showcased the tremendous advancements being made toward concussion safety in Canada. More national, provincial, territorial and community sport organizations, government representatives and others doing important concussion work, came together than ever before. We invite you to take further action and: Please share your feedback in our exit survey. Through the survey, you can participate in our raffle to win a signed copy of Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser’s new book, Over the Boards: Lessons from the Ice; Keep an eye on the website for this year’s symposium presentations and videos coming soon; Use SIRC’s concussion hub as a go-to source of concussion resources and research; Subscribe to the Canadian Sport Daily newsletter, and follow SIRC on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to stay informed. We look forward to seeing you next year.
