Concussions or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), are an on-going issue in sport and activity. There are many misconceptions as to what a TBI is, how quickly different individuals recover, and a number of other issues.

Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions in terms of topics.

Training Camps

Well it's that time of year yet again. The summer is officially over in the varsity therapy world. Student trainers, if you are in Waterloo and available to help out with another team please let me know as we can always use extra help at this time of the year. If you have KIN classmates who might be interested in becoming student trainers please have them email me at . Requirements initially are current first aid and CPR certifications. Taking KIN 140L in the winter is also strongly recommended but people can begin prior to taking the course.
