The uOBMRI-Rowan's Legacy Symposium is a collaborative event seeking to enhance concussion education and awareness in the Ottawa community. The event is designed to educate athletes, coaches, parents, and the general public on the impact of concussions, as well as present current concussion and head trauma research. The goal of the event is to create general awareness regarding head trauma and to answer popular questions, including what to do if your child has a concussion.

This symposium will feature researchers and health care professionals who will provide information on leading advances in concussion care and research. In this regard, Dr. Shawn Marshall will provide information on the status of current treatment for concussion injury in adults while Dr. Roger Zemek will describe leading research on pediatric concussion injury.

Additionally, the event will feature an athlete panel where former and current elite athletes (professional, semi-professional, and university) can share how concussions impacted their education and playing careers. This event is brought to the Ottawa community through a partnership between the University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute and the Concussion Legacy Foundation Canada in honor of the late Rowan Stringer of Nepean, Ontario and her family.
