Moore Center client Matthew Bachand can be seen in a clip on NBC Nightly News featuring professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce discussing concussions and head injuries. Pearce, who was The Moore Center’s 2013 Annual Celebration keynote speaker, at age 18, became the athlete to watch in the ever-evolving sport of professional snowboarding. He was at the top of his field, training for the Olympic Trials in December 2009, when he suffered a traumatic brain injury while attempting one of the most daring tricks in snowboarding, the cab double cork. Bachand became a client of The Moore Center in 2013 after he suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in a motorcycle accident and had a chance to meet Pearce at the Annual Meeting.
