The Concussion Institute was developed as part of the initiative to improve the treatment of concussions.

Maria Chininis, Educational Coordinator of the Concussion Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center, was interviewed by host Tracy McDaniel on the April 18, 2014 episode of Testing the Experts. Gwinnett Medical Center – Duluth recently announced the opening of the Concussion Institute and Chininis discussed the purpose and offerings available.

“We take a very comprehensive approach,” said Chininis. “We have two neuropsychologists, four athletic trainers, and two physical therapists. My job is to communicate a comprehensive plan to the schools, the family members, and the experts at the institute.”

The Concussion Institute was developed as part of the initiative to improve the treatment of concussions. With the latest technology and the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) Program, the Institute is able to diagnose concussions sooner and with greater accuracy. The Institute has also placed certified athletic trainers in high schools around the area in an effort to reduce the chance of follow-up concussions.

Chininis has worked in numerous educational facilities and was just recognized for serving 25 years as an administrator.
