Science, education, and community working together to prevent and manage concussions

Media

Thank you for your interest in the Maine Concussion Management Initiative.  We’re ready to help you craft your stories by sourcing  the clinical and professional insight that comes from real knowledge and interest in concussion. We have nothing to sell and have no reason to spin. We are affiliated with physicians, parents, athletic trainers, neuropsychologists, academic leaders who can speak, on the record, to the science and the community issues surrounding concussions and mild traumatic brain injury.  Nationally, we are affiliated with hospitals and researchers  doing groundbreaking work on concussion.

Importantly, among the staff are former journalists and experts who understand what a deadline means across multiple time zones.  Looking for background on MCMI?  Click links below.
