Sports Concussions: Facts, Fallacies and New Frontiers
The Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO) is hosting its annual Sports Concussions: Facts, Fallacies and New Frontiers Regional Seminars throughout Missouri between January 26, 2017 and March 2, 2017.
Coaches, athletic directors, licensed athletic trainers, school nurses, school counselors, and community recreational league administration are encouraged to attend.
Sharing new information about concussions with athletic teams and school personnel will help reduce the risk of potential long-term cognitive, physical, perceptual and emotional effects that can occur. Proper concussion care may permit the youth to continue playing sports now and in the future.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. Space is limited so be sure to register today!
