About The Event
The Big Ten Conference and the Ivy League, in conjunction with the Big Ten Academic Alliance, will host the Big Ten-Ivy League Traumatic Brain Injury Summit on July 18-19, 2018 at The Inn at Penn in Philadelphia, PA.  Representatives from each member institution
of the Big Ten and Ivy League will participate in the two-day event in order to engage in collaborative discussions and to refine the strategic priorities of the historic, unprecedented research initiative that was announced by the conferences in June 2012. The summit provides a forum for subject-matter experts in attendance to review the current clinical and research efforts that exist on each campus as they relate to traumatic brain injury.

The goals of the summit are as follows:

    • Provide a platform to highlight scientific and clinical advances of the Big Ten and Ivy League community that are improving the health and safety of our student athletes;
    • Create a collaborative environment that will develop networking opportunities leading to formal research partnerships, funding opportunities;
    • Add to the national dialogue and education regarding concussion prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
