The Impact of CTE
May 7, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM$125.00
After the heroics are over, the damage of sport and war to the brain
CurePSP, the foundation for prime of life neurodegeneration, presents a must-see event on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 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 will be moderated by Jon LaPook, MD of CBS News and includes:
Robert Stern, PhD – Boston University
Sam Gandy, MD, PhD – Mount Sinai
Lisa McHale – Concussion Legacy Foundation
Mike Adamle – Probable CTE Patient
Kim Adamle – Spouse and Advocate
Karen Kinzle Zegel – Patrick Risha CTE Awareness Foundation
6:00pm -7:00pm: Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres

8:00pm-9:00pm: Cocktails and Conversation
