Have some fun things coming up that I am excited about:
- Sunday, June 8, Detroit: The Shady Ladies Literary Society‘s June Chemistry Club, at the Detroit City FC training house. It is going to be an informal yet informed chat about concussions, youth sports and how we can best protect our kids – plus cocktails! Copies of Back in the Game will be available. For event tickets…click here.
- I am really honored to be named as a Fulbright Specialist, by the U.S. Department of State. What does this mean? Hopefully soon, I will be heading off to somewhere in the world to share my passion and knowledge for journalism, sports, the important role of women in media. It is a big responsibility to represent a free press, and I am super thrilled to be selected to challenge myself like this.
- mid-July, Chicago: I will be the keynote speaker at the Big Ten-Ivy League TBI Conference, which has done so much over the years to advance the discussion and research in sports concussions and brain injury. I will also be doing some media training, in the important area of how researchers/clinicians and sports media can best work together. We often don’t speak the same language.
