See the Line
See the Line is a collaborative, 10-year initiative that seeks to educate athletes, coaches, parents and the broader community about the serious impact of concussions. In doing so it aims to shift the culture around concussion in sport, reduce the incidence of concussion and improve care through research.
Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry proudly hosts See the Line’s core events on campus annually in August in partnership with faculties at Western including the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering, and with the Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic, London Health Sciences Foundation, and the Concussion Legacy Foundation.
