Comprehensive Care and Support for the Concussed College Student
March 17, 2018 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pmFree
Saturday, March 17 @ 8:45 am – 3 pm
Just as the brain controls every function of the body, a concussion affects every aspect of a college student’s life. It takes a team approach to support students recovering from a concussion. Our discussion will cover immediate recognition and care for a concussion, as well as how the campus academic community can provide proper services and support for the student. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with others to problem-solve and share ideas on how their campus community can best care for and support the concussed college student. Breakfast and lunch are included.
