Sport-Related Concussion & Head Injury Research Study

Opportunity

 

UNC IRB Study #: 14-1357

 

Want to learn more about how your child is responding to his/her sport-related concussion or head injury?

 

Researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill are conducting a study of sport-related head injuries in collaboration with Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine. If your child sustained a head injury in sport, is 8-18 years old and is seeing their provider within 3 days of their injury, they may be eligible to participate.

 

The study only involves information gathered from your child’s initial visit and completion of a 1-month follow-up survey either online or via phone. Let your Athletic Trainer/provider know if you and your child may be interested!

 

You can also contact Johna Register-Mihalik, the Principal Investigator for the study at (919) 962-2702 or johnakay@email.unc.edu.
