Ray Ciancaglini is a wonderful friend to us here at NeuroNotes. Ray is a tireless advocate for concussions awareness and prevention of The Second Impact Syndrome. A retired boxer living with the long-term effects of multiple concussions, Ray has made preventing other athletes from experiencing the problems associated with multiple concussions his Number 1 priority. Ray speaks at brain injury conferences throughout the U.S., as well as at athletic conferences for all levels of athletes to share information vital to concussion recognition, management and prevention. Recently, Ray was interviewed by a Massachusetts radio station to address the topic of sports concussions. We want to share his interview with our NeuroNotes readers.
