See the Line

See the Line 2017

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 and the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

See the Line 2020

We were very much looking forward to the 2020 event scheduled to take place on August 13. However, due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty regarding the hosting of events in the coming months, Dr. Jayne Garland, Chair, See the Line Committee, in partnership with Eric Lindros, Honorary Chair, have decided to cancel the 2020 event.

This is being done in an effort to minimize the potential risk to faculty, staff, learners and community members.

Thank you for your continued interest in this event and concussion research and education. We look forward to sharing plans for the 2021 See the Line event as they unfold.
