From youth sports to the NFL, talk about concussions and their damaging effects has dominated the sports world for the past decade.

But through the work of centers like UNC-Chapel Hill’s Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center, researchers are learning how to better manage the injury and protect the athletes.

With fall sports gearing up in the coming weeks, we talk about concussions and managing them with Johna Register-Mihalik, an assistant professor of exercise and sports science with the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center and the Injury Prevention Research Center.

Join UNC every other Wednesday for the University’s “Well Said” podcast as they talk with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
