FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas is hosting researchers from several universities next week at a Concussion in Youth Sport Research Summit.

A panel of researchers will present the latest developments and emerging research on the subject Nov. 14 at the Reynolds Center Auditorium on campus. The event is free and open to the public. People who can’t attend in person can watch the summit online for free.

R.J. Elbin, an assistant professor of kinesiology, will lead the summit, and is bringing in researchers who study various aspects of concussion in youth sports, including football, basketball, soccer and cheerleading.

Elbin directs the Office of Sport Concussion Research - established earlier this year in the College of Education and Health Professions.
