The pandemic has changed our habits -- and that means many more people are heading outside for activities while keeping socially distanced. Among them, people who may be engaging in snow sports for the first time or first time in a long time and that means they need to take precautions to protect their head. In fact, January is National Winter Sports TBI Awareness Month – TBI being Traumatic Brain Injury. Dr. Hamish Kerr is a physician at Albany Medical Center who specializes in sports-related concussions.

Digital-exclusive health reports from Dr. Benita Zahn. Look for new episodes every Monday and Thursday.
