New career?

A lot is happening in the world right now regarding Sport Related Concussions (SRC). People are aware of the increasing number of ice-hockey players who quit their careers due to brain injuries, Will Smith is the star of the 2015 movie 'Concussion' where Dr. Bennet Omalu discovers a new disease, CTE (Cronic traumatic Encephalopathy) and the NFL are reviewing their rules regarding impact to the head.

At the same time I´m trying my best to do my part in all of this. I have gotten the chance to stand in front of an audience at three different occusions in one month, sharing my story and informing others about the seriousness of SRCs. 
 
Of these three occusions, the second was of greatest importance. I was invited by the Swedish Karate Federation, to speak in front of 20 medical doctors who will work at karate competitions in Sweden. At the same event the well known Dr. Yelverton Tegner shared his knowledge and experience. 

A lot of things are happening right now and I will continue lecturing as much as I can. Soon in a few weeks, I will get a chance to stand in front of a new audience, an audience I was once part of a few years ago, completely unaware of the danger of concussions. 
 
The story continues...
