Journal Club: Concussion Vision Problems: Convergence, Parvocellular vs. Magnocellular Pathways, and More (January 2023)
January 10 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Join Co-Founder Dr. Helena Esmonde PT, DPT, NCS and Dr. Becky Bliss, PT, DPT, DHSc as they discuss and take live questions about recent research on the topic of vision problems in patients with concussion.
Dr. Becky Bliss is a Clinical Assistant Teaching Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Missouri and is a board certified in Neurological Physical Therapy. She also serves the role of Program Coordinator for the Neurological Physical Therapy Residency. She holds her Certificate in Vestibular Rehabilitation from the APTA, as well as Advanced Vestibular Certificate and is an Impact Trained Physical Therapist. Becky has been actively practicing in the field of physical therapy for 21 years with specialization in concussion management since 2006.
