The media gathering with Canada's chief medical officers and sport partners will be held at 10 a.m. at Canadian Sport Institute Calgary, located in the Markin MacPhail Centre at Winsport's Canada Olympic Park.

The Chief Medical Officers will discuss the comprehensive guidelines that will be implemented for concussions in high performance sport, ensuring Canada's sport system delivers high quality care to athletes in national team programs across the country throughout the athlete pathway.
