The Western New York Head Injury Seminar is offered for free as a public service to families with physically active children and will take place at the Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. This program welcomes and is intended for educators, coaches, and parents of children in all sports, as well as NYSED officials, local politicians, medical doctors - from pediatricians to family physicians, and allied health professionals. Andy Smith, ATC, Director of Sports Medicine at Canisius College, states, “This is an excellent opportunity to bring nationally renowned speakers together to share their expertise about concussions and concussion management with athletes and parents, as well as allied health professionals, who deal with this topic on a daily basis.”
