Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium

The Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium (mTBI Symposium) is an annual two-day event that brings together researchers and clinicians to learn about the latest discoveries in and care for brain injury. The first day is dedicated to basic and clinical research, while the second day focuses on clinical care, specifically in rehabilitative services.
