CTE & Dementia Awareness Expo

Learn about 'safe sport' and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) from experts in their field, Dr Rowena Mobbs from Macquarie University and Dr Suraj Samtani from University of NSW.

The presenters will talk about the connection between repetitive head trauma, in particular concussions in sports, and the development of CTE. They will provide insights into the latest research findings, risk factors, and preventive measures to reduce the incidence of CTE. The talks will also address concussion management protocols and player safety initiatives.

Other forms of dementia will also be discussed, with suggestions for reducing the risk of all dementias.
