During his time at Queen’s, Grant was an executive for the Queen’s Concussion Awareness Committee, a student-run initiative dedicated to raising awareness about head injuries on campus. As part of his leadership role, he helped host two symposiums bringing together some of the leading concussion and CTE researchers.
