Save the Date! On May 7th CurePSP is hosting The Impact of CTE, a panel discussion on the neurodegenerative disease CTE.
CurePSP, the foundation for prime of life neurodegeneration, presents a must-see event on May 7 in New York City on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease that results from repeated head trauma often sustained by young men and women in contact sports and military service. CTE is in a category of prime of life neurodegenerative diseases that research suggests are linked pathologically and exhibit many similar symptoms. Research into these prime of life diseases may lead to treatments for more-common conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Neurodegeneration is currently incurable and treatments are limited. A panel of medical experts and those who have been directly affected will discuss the latest science and their real-life experiences around CTE. Our panel includes:
- Robert Stern, PhD, Boston University
- Sam Gandy, MD, PhD, Mount Sinai
- Lisa McHale, Concussion Legacy Foundation
- Mike Adamle, CTE patient
- Kim Adamle, Spouse and advocate
- Karen Kinzle Zegel, Patrick Risha CTE Awareness Foundation
