CTE in the female brain

On May 23, I had the opportunity to cover “CTE in the Female Brain: Researching Answers for Women Athletes, Veterans, and Brain Injury Survivors” -- a conference at Mount Sinai led by PINK Concussions, a nonprofit founded in 2013 that centers on research and advocacy for women with brain injuries. The event featured a diverse lineup that included the latest research from a range of doctors in the field, a panel of women who are living with brain injuries, and a keynote speech from Trisha Meili, author of the best-selling memoir I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility.
