Dr. Jessica Schwartz is the founder of The Concussion Corner Academy® and Podcast®, national spokesperson for the American Physical Therapy Association, and is a persistent post-concussion symptom thriver, advocate and concussion educator. After spending a full year in rehabilitation, experiencing the profound dichotomy of being both doctor and patient, Dr. Schwartz identified the gaps in concussion treatment and management in the global healthcare community. Her role has been to identify the cognitive blind spots for healthcare providers, physicians to athletic trainers, focusing on comprehensive targeted physical examinations, rehabilitative teams, and concussion care management. Her vision is to facilitate collective competence across the healthcare continuum in order to better identify, treat, and care for the concussion patient of today.
