A neuroscientist, a radiologist, and an engineer walk into a bar...sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. In reality it marked the beginning of a collaboration to develop a virtual reality app to improve education about concussions among college football players. Concussions are one of the most important public health problems that spans multiple sports including soccer, hockey, wrestling, and other contact sports. This presentation will highlight the development process of the virtual reality app and the lessons learned from the experience working with athletes, soldiers, physicians, and psychologists.
