Rowan's Legacy Symposium

Next Wednesday, September 25 is the second annual Rowan’s Law Day across the province in honour of Rowan Stringer – a 17 year old rugby player from Nepean who died after sustaining multiple concussions. Her death led to a coroner’s inquest and eventually legislation mandating protocols for identifying concussion in young athletes, their treatment and return to play guidelines.
Rowan's Legacy Symposium will be an evening of discussion on the impacts of concussion in sport in honour of Rowan on the 2nd anniversary of Canada's first concussion legislation. This FREE event is open to all members of the public. Please note registration is mandatory and space is limited. Please register at: RowansSymposium.eventbrite.com
