Joseph Carere

Joseph Carere is an MSc student working under the supervision of Dr. Jonathan Smirl and Dr. Carolyn Emery. Prior to his MSc, Joseph attended the University of Toronto where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education in 2020. During his undergraduate campaign, Joseph acquired a special interest in concussion, sport medicine, and sport injury prevention. He has also dealt with persistent post-concussion symptoms since a hockey incident in 2015. Joseph’s personal concussion experience has guided his passion to perform sport injury research and to promote health as the most important gift a person possesses.
