UPMC St. Margaret’s Dr. James Bradley Leads Conversation About ‘Playing It Safe: Concussions’ April 9
WHAT: One of the leading sports-medicine surgeons in the United States will discuss sports-related injuries such as ACLs, separated shoulders, stress fractures and the hot-button topic of concussions.
WHY: Sports injuries befall more than 5.5 million athletes from youth through high-school athletics each year, according to most estimates. Concussions remain the most misunderstood and often misdiagnosed sports-related injury that affects anywhere from 1.8 million to 3.3 million Americans annually.
This discussion will show how athletes, parents, coaches and administrators can learn more facts about injuries common to fields and courts, how they potentially can limit such injuries, and how these issues can be successfully treated through proper evaluation, management and therapy by trained health care professionals.
WHEN: 6 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 9
Reservations are required. To make a reservation, call 412-784-4022. Participants will receive free validated parking and light refreshments.
