When physical abuse in a domestic violence relationship escalates, injuries sustained by the victim can sometimes go undiagnosed and untreated. One of the most concerning injuries that can be overlooked is a concussion or traumatic brain injury. When domestic violence advocates know the warning signs of a concussion or brain injury and ask the right questions, they can help the survivor to access important medical care. The Concussion Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center- Duluth’s presentation will include concussion education and awareness, signs and symptoms, and concussion management.
