Groundbreaking Concussion Research Study Underway

I am always amazed by the interesting research happening at MedStar. Just recently we announced our participation in an upcoming youth concussion research study at Walt Whitman High School! 

The study will research a new handheld, non-invasive electroencephalogram (EEG) device being developed by BrainScope that can quickly assess concussions and other traumatic brain injuries.  MedStar Health researchers will recruit 50 varsity student-athletes to participate in the yearlong study.  MedStar Sports Medicine physicians and concussion specialists, Elizabeth Delasobera, MD and Kori Hudson, MD, will oversee the study along with Andrew Lincoln, ScD, MS, director of the Sports Medicine Research Center for the MedStar Health Research Institute. Athletic trainers Katie Brodka and Chris Worrell will also be involved. Check out this article and brief interview with Dr. Lincoln on the benefits of this project!
