An estimated 5,000 athletic trainers and athletic directors and 350 exhibitors convene for the annual NATA convention to gather the latest in sport concussion management among other sports medicine advances to support student-athletes and training facilities. Neurologist Harry Kerasidis, M.D. specializes in sports concussion management, and developed a web-based, all-encompassing concussion system designed for athletic training called XLNTbrain Sport™ (booth No 6133).
