We exist to provide HOPE to individuals who have had concussions and other head injuries and their families by providing education and awareness to the public and by supporting research that pertains to the diagnosis, management, treatment, and healing necessary to prevent the long-term effects of head traumas and concussions that can lead to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). We provide support and hope to those who suffer from early symptoms. We are an advocate, a voice, seeking preventative measures so that athletes, parents, athletic trainers, and coaches have the best information at those critical moments to keep athletes safe.
RESEARCH UPDATE: February 8th, 2018
CTE Hope is excited to report that our preliminary saliva research demonstrates that saliva can be used to monitor the inflammation in an athlete’s brain that can lead to CTE if not properly treated! We continue to try to find ways to protect our athletes, while letting them participate in the sports they love. This is just one step in that effort. More research needs to be done, but we are making good progress! So grateful to the Warren County Philanthropic Partnership for the grant that helped get us here! Read our full press release here.
