Montana Concussion Symposium-2023 Updates

We’re pleased to announce that the Montana Concussion Symposium-2023 Updates conference will be on April 7, 2023 at Logan Health in the Buffalo Hills Conference Center. Register here.

Logan Health is proud to spotlight our  virtual guest speakers for the symposium.

       Andrew Sas, MD, PhD
       Assistant Professor of Neurology
       Ohio State University

Dr. Sas is an MD PhD clinician scientist in neurology at The Ohio State University. He was awarded a NIH K08 grant funding his work to examine the inflammatory response after traumatic axonal injury under the mentorship of Dr. Segal. In the laboratory, his focus is on immunomodulation after traumatic neuronal injury to stimulate axon regeneration of neurons and improve recovery after optic nerve crush injury and traumatic brain or spinal cord injury. His focus is on the recruitment and enhancement of neuroprotective and regenerative myeloid cells after neuronal injury that can stimulate axon regeneration and recovery from trauma.
Dr. Sas completed his MD and PhD at the Medical University of South Carolina with a research focus in neuroimmunology. He completed his residency in neurology at the University of Michigan where he was chief resident in his final year.Dr. Sas then completed a clinical fellowship in sports neurology and traumatic brain injury at the University of Michigan, and sees traumatic brain injury patients in the clinic.  He returned to the laboratory during his fellowship with an NIH R25 grant, and continue research with his NIH K08 grant. The goal of his research is to find translational immunotherapy targets to promote healing after traumatic neuronal injury.

       Chelsea Kane, PsyD
       Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
       Ohio State University

Chelsea Kane, PsyD, ABPP is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Ohio State University. She earned her doctorate from the University of Indianapolis and completed residency at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Hospital (Miami, FL). She completed her post-doctoral fellowship in rehabilitation and neuropsychology at Ohio State University. She has been on faculty at OSU since fall 2017. Her clinical work spans inpatient, critical care, and outpatient settings with outpatient work being exclusively neuropsychological assessment. Dr. Kane has research experience consulting on and managing projects across clinical populations including chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord injury. She currently manages “Physiological Markers of Early Recovery following TBI”; this study is assessing how TBI affects autonomic dysregulation, metabolic functioning and aims to discern how hyper-inflammation may be associated with recovery trajectory, cognitive and executive functioning, emotion regulation, and community participation. The study aims to characterize longitudinal changes in physiological markers that may foreshadow later decline, and evaluate relationships with cognitive and psychosocial functioning. Finally, Dr. Kane is passionate about knowledge translation and communication of research findings to public and stakeholder audiences.
