Gender Issues and Sport-related Concussion
October 9, 2014; 1-2:30 pm (EDT)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 1.6-3.8 million sport and recreational concussions occur annually in the United States. Epidemiological studies conducted to understand sex differences between female and male athletes with respect to sport injury incidence and prevalence have shown that female athletes at both the collegiate and high school levels are at a greater risk for incurring a concussion. In addition, females have been found to report slightly longer concussion symptoms and cognitive impairments. The empirical findings on sex differences in sport-related concussion warrant clinical considerations when assessing concussion among male and female athletes.
