Why Does Concussion Affect Men Differently Than Women?


 

DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): June 2014
 

Date/Time: June 12, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

There is increasing concern in the military and sports medicine communities that concussive events may have different effects on men compared with women. Controversy exists regarding the risk and prevalence of hypogonadism following concussion or more severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), possible neuroprotective effects of sex hormones and the potential benefits of treating men with TBI with the female sex hormones progesterone or estrogen. This webinar will address the pathophysiologic and neuroendocrine responses to concussion and more severe brain injuries, recovery patterns for men and the clinical evidence regarding hormone therapy after TBI.

You are invited to the DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): June 2014 titled, Why Does Concussion Affect Men Differently Than Women?  We look forward to your participation on Thursday, June 12, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT).  Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
