Dawn Comstock, PhD, professor of epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health, will present information on how traumatic brain injuries is linked to depression and anxiety among young people. This is a wonderful presentation for parents or coaches to learn more about how young athletes are impacted by the rising rates of traumatic brain injuries in many sports, including soccer, football, lacrosse and more.

This discussion is free and open to the public, but space is limited so pre-registration is required by emailing criley@mhpcolorado.org. 

The Young Minds Matter series will pick up again in January 2019 with the final two lecture topics. For more information, please visit www.mhpcolorado.org/community/lecture-series.
