    About the conference: Every three years The Center Foundation, in collaboration with community partners, hosts an educational symposium dedicated to updating our collective knowledge regarding the recognition, diagnosis, management and prevention of concussions. The last concussion conference, held in April of 2017, included experts from the University of North Carolina and Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. This year's conference plans to build on that knowledge, as well as providing an opportunity for medical professionals from the Pacific Northwest to meet and collaborate on the best practices in concussion management.

    Deborah M. Little, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the director of research for the Trauma and Resilience Center. In general, her work is focused on elucidating neurobiological alterations in the central nervous system secondary to trauma (brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, toxic exposure), identifying  psychosocial outcomes following trauma and the development of early interventions to reduce chronic trauma burden. Current projects include those set out to characterize the mechanisms that underlie risk for neurodegenerative disease secondary to brain trauma; development of diagnostic tests using high field magnetic resonance imaging for those who have been exposed to toxins during military service; and development of early interventions for PTSD.
