About the Presenter:

Dr. John J. Leddy is a practicing clinician, active researcher and instructor at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. He is the Medical Director of the University at Buffalo Concussion Clinic, which is the first center in the U.S. to use a standardized exercise treadmill test to establish recovery from concussion and to use controlled exercise in the rehabilitation of patients acutely after concussion and in those with prolonged symptoms. His primary research interest is the investigation of the basic mechanisms of the disturbance of whole body physiology that occurs in concussion and how to help restore the physiology to normal, helping patients recover and safely return to activity and sport.
