On Sunday, Oct. 27, the Canisius Athletic Training Club and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will welcome former professional boxer Ray Ciancaglini to campus. Ciancaglini has spoken to student-athletes, coaches and athletic trainers across New York state about post concussion and secondary impact syndromes, and last spring he was featured in a segment on ABC’s Good Morning America. A native of Geneva, NY, Ciancaglini was an aspiring middleweight boxer from 1966-74, but he now suffers from Dementia Pugilistica, also known as “Punch-Drunk” syndrome.
The event will be held in the main Koessler Athletic Center gym and will start at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the entire campus community.
