Concussion talk slated

 


An educational event about concussions in student athletes will be offered March 30 from 1-2 p.m. at Coulee Medical Center.

Dr. Tom McNalley, MD, an assistant professor of rehabilitative medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine will be here from Seattle to talk about the effects of such brain injuries and the importance of watching for them.

The public is encouraged to attend, and organizer Jon Patberg says anyone who tells him they’re coming by Monday, March 23 gets a free lunch. He can be reached at 419-699-3111.

Patberg has also invited athletic directors from area schools, hoping to help establish more standardized protocols for screening and treating concussions in school sports.
