Hi I'm Kim Nelson-Ingram. Thank you for checking out this episode of The Help Desk.

Think about this: Approximately every 23 seconds in the United States a mild traumatic brain injury (i.e. concussion) occurs as a result of a fall, vehicle related collision, sports injury and other blows or trauma to the head. Very often symptoms from these injuries may appear subtle and unrecognizable by others for weeks, months or even years later.

In the memoir Broken Silence, speech-language pathologist and professional speaker Eudora Pickett Nelson, shares the story of a mild traumatic brain injury she suffered at nine years old but was not medically diagnosed until 50 years later.

On this episode of The Help Desk you'll learn some of the most common symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury and how to take steps toward cognitive improvement.
