Made possible by a generous gift from the Satterberg Foundation, the Seattle Pediatric Concussion Collaborative is one of the nation’s largest pediatric concussion research programs. Our world-class team unites experts in different areas – from sports medicine to psychiatry to neurosurgery – to conduct clinical studies that improve our understanding of youth concussion and find better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it.
