New Publication on Concussions in Children

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

A recent article in Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery by HEAL faculty collaborators Tanya Charyk-Stewart, Jason Gilliland and Doug Fraser was highlighted today in the London Free Press and radio and TV outlets. The original article titled "An epidemiologic profile of pediatric concussions: Identifying urban and rural differences" describes the epidemiology of concussions presenting to the emergency department, and uses GIS mapping to reveal how rural and urban children have differences in their etiology and severity of concussions. Click here for the article and here for the story in the London Free Press.
