TeachAids Advisor Featured on a Podcast about Sports and Technology!
TeachAids advisor Dr. Daniel Daneshvar is recognized for his leadership in a major 2017 study on deceased professional football players’ brains, in which 110 of 111 showed evidence of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Today he is starring on FUTRSPRT, a podcast devoted to investigating the increasing presence of technology in the world of sports.
FUTRSPRT has hosted numerous notable guests including the President of NFL Players, Ahmad Nassar, and the Founder/CEO of Sparta Science, Dr. Phil Wagner. We are excited for Dr. Daneshvar to join the podcast stage and share how TeachAids is utilizing technological advancements to better educate youth about concussions and head trauma.
Prior to working with TeachAids, Dr. Daneshvar published over 40 articles on the long term effects of repetitive head trauma, including CTE. In addition to his current role as a Stanford Resident in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, he works at the CTE Center at Boston University. His research aims to identify associations between brain trauma and CTE symptoms, including depression, memory loss, aggression, and dementia. According to CNN, Dr. Daneshvar’s aforementioned 2017 CTE study on deceased football players’ brains was the largest of its kind.
A former collegiate athlete himself, Dr. Daneshvar collaborates with the Concussion Legacy Foundation, where he founded a concussion education program for kids: Team Up Against Concussions. He also helped run the largest tissue repository in the world, which focuses on researching TBI and CTE.
TeachAids is excited to have Dr. Daniel Daneshvar speak about the work he and the TeachAids team has been doing to develop concussion education. Tune in to FUTRSPRT to hear all about his projects and work with TeachAids!
