First Brain Injury Seminar on Long Island at Huntington High School
Scheduled for Thursday evening, October 6, from 7-9 p.m. at Huntington High School, “Brain Trauma and the Athlete” will discuss head injuries in athletes and include a slide presentation titled “On the Field Assessment, Evaluations and Return to Play Criteria.” The Young Professionals Chamber of Commerce, a division of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Dr. Michael A. Kennedy, Board Certified Emergency and Sports Medicine Physician from Expert Medical Care, is sponsoring this seminar.
Recently, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed a breakthrough Concussion Law because high school students were returning to competition too soon after suffering concussions and this has caused much controversy.
The distinguished panel joining us includes: Donna Chisholm, PT Pro Sports Physical Therapy; Georgia McCarthy, Director of Athletics Huntington High School; Diego Garcia ATC, CSCS, Head Athletic Trainer Cold Spring Harbor High School; Dr. Jim Wright, Supervisor of Physical Education, Athletics & Recreation Walt Whitman High School; Carol Rose, Girls Varsity Lacrosse, Northport High School and Paul Lasinski, ATC, Athletic Trainer Harborfields School District and Rick Reichert, Head Football Coach St. Anthony’s High School.
Students, parents and athletes are invited to attend this worthwhile event providing vital information that you won’t want to miss! A question and answer session will follow. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
