The incidence of concussions as a result of participation in sporting events is staggering. This is a health issue that is in need of increased exploration and focus due to high risk of implications that occur later on in life for those who experience a high number of mild concussions, and low number of severe concussions. In this presentation I hope to provide an overview of current knowledge regarding head injuries related to participation in sporting events, specifically concussions.  I will review the causes, issues, and current strategies that are geared towards solving this issue, as well as discuss a potential future study to gain more insight on what can be done to combat the increasing prevalence of concussions.
