My guest today is Dr. Kevin Jackson who is sharing information on his research that he’s done on concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

Some highlights in today’s show

• Kevin’s experiences with playing football at U of I and concussions
• How his career led him into doing research on traumatic brain injuries
