The Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Concussion Management - Anthony Kontos, PhD
Session Summary: The webinar discussed the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on concussion patients and the role of telemedicine to extend concussion care within the framework of a multidomain assessment and active, targeted treatment approach.

Insights into Concussion Pathophysiology and Recovery from microRNAs - Steven Hicks, MD, PhD
Session Summary: Dr. Hicks is an associate professor in the department of academic general pediatrics at the Milton S. Hershey Penn State College of Medicine. He graduated from the MD/PhD program at SUNY Upstate Medical University in 2012, where he studied the influence of neurotrophic growth factors on the epigenetic response of neural stem cells to alcohol exposure under an NIH F30 pre-doctoral fellowship. During his pediatrics residency at SUNY Upstate Medical University (2012-2015) Dr. Hicks studied alterations in circulating microRNA in children with autism spectrum disorder. Currently Dr. Hicks splits his time caring for children in the general pediatrics outpatient clinic and performing translational studies involving pediatric growth and development. He is interested in the epigenetic signatures at the intersection of genetics and the environment which drive pediatric disease, particularly in relation to concussion, autism, and breastfeeding.
