In November of 2013, leaders at Rothman Institute, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Wills Eye Hospital collaborated to create the Jefferson Comprehensive Concussion Center (JCCC). Located in the heart of the Philadelphia Navy Yard, Robert Franks, D.O. of the Rothman Institute is the medical co-director of the center along with Mijail Serruya, M.D., Ph.D., a top cognitive neurologist at Jefferson.
Now, the professionals at JCCC are celebrating their first anniversay in a big way.
“In our first year, we had 365 days of patients who were not properly educated on concussions,” said Linda Fabrizio Mazzoli, MS, JCCC director. “So we partnered with ImPACT for the 365 project; we’re giving away a free baseline test for every day we were open.”
