Dr. Michael 'Micky' Collins, clinical and executive director of the UPMC Concussion Program, goes through a complete examination with a patient.

After years of controversy surrounding the effects and treatments for concussions and in light of the recent release of the movie, ‘Concussion,’ Energy and Commerce Committee leaders announced last month that they’d hold a broad review of these types of injuries. Although the snow has prevented this week’s meetings, we’ll talk with Dr. Michael Collins, Director of the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, who was scheduled to testify. An internationally renowned head trauma expert, Dr. Collins will share how he expects the discussions to transpire and what input he plans to provide.
