Concussion Awareness Presented at Sports Institute Seminar

 
  

March 7, 2013 -- Valley Neurosurgeon Anthony D’Ambrosio, M.D. (shown here), and Steve Kennelly, Med, ATC, Assistant Head Athletic Trainer for the NY Giants, were among the speakers at a concussion awareness seminar presented last month by The Valley Hospital Sports Institute.

The seminar included an audiovisual presentation of concussion recognition, treatment, and management; discussion of second impact syndrome, post-concussion syndrome, and return to play guidelines; a question and answer session; and information and resources on concussion awareness and management. Attendees received certificates of participation to meet state coaching guidelines. 

The Valley Hospital Sports Institute is an ImPACT testing provider.  The ImPACT Concussion Management Test is an innovative computerized evaluation system that assesses the effects and severity of a concussion and helps determine when it is safe for an athlete to return to contact sports following a concussion.  For more information about ImPACT testing, please call the Sports Institute at 201-447-8133.
