A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Specifically, a concussion occurs when an impulse is sent to the brain, causing a complex metabolic chain of events.

After returning to the United States, Adventures in Health Education and Agricultural Development (AHEAD) inc. was created by Dr. Williams and Mrs. Elvira Williams to continue work in underserved communities.
