Le Groupe de recherche en santé et droit (RGHL) vous invite à une conférence-midi avec Jason Chung (BCL/LLB'14), qui examinera la question à savoir si les commotions cérébrales sont un problème de santé publique ou simplement un problème pour les ligues sportives.

Le nombre de places est limité: prière de confirmer sa présence en écrivant à rghl.law [at] mcgill.ca.

Une demande d'accréditation pour 1,5h de formation continue obligatoire pour juristes a été déposée auprès d'un dispensateur reconnu.


[En anglais seulement] His talk will explore whether concussions in sport are a public health problem or merely an NFL/NHL problem. Chung will outline how media narratives have inaccurately portrayed conflicting research regarding the prevalence of sports-related neurodegenerative conditions, such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), among the general population and how this is impacting law-making, policy and legal decisions across North America.
