FREE Education Seminar for Parents and Athletes
McKinney, Texas – A knock to the noggin. A bump on the head. Call it what you want, but every 21 seconds someone in the U.S. experiences what is medically known as a concussion or traumatic brain injury.
These injuries can be relatively minor or devastatingly severe. They can be especially dangerous -- even deadly – if a second concussion occurs before the first has enough time to heal.
Join Brent Morgan, MD, a neurosurgeon on staff at Medical City McKinney, for a free seminar, “Heads Up: Concussion Diagnosis and Management.” Attendees will learn what can cause a concussion, how to diagnose a concussion and interventions that should be taken immediately following and shortly thereafter. Dr. Morgan will also discuss long-term consequences of concussions and recommended future athletic endeavors to prevent additional brain injuries.
This seminar will be held Thursday, August 6th at the Sheraton McKinney Hotel, 1900 Gateway Blvd., McKinney, TX 75069 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Dinner will be served.
