Southern Miss Professor discusses Brain Trauma during visit to Camp Shelby

Dr. Scott Piland, associate professor in the School of Human Performance and Recreation at The University of Southern Mississippi, recently visited Camp Shelby to speak at an event held in conjunction with Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness month.   

A group of more than 120 soldiers, support staff, and medical officers of the Medical Task Force Shelby, listened to Piland speak on the topic of "Head Protection: Playing Field to Battlefield." 

"It is always a pleasure to engage the community to let everyone know the great things that are happening at Southern Miss in HPR," said Piland. "We are committed to serve as the state's premier source for not only education about the brain injury of concussion, but also innovative and novel material technologies to reduce and prevent its occurrence in athletes and warfighters."
