Date:12/17/2012

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

On Friday, January 4th, 2013, there will be a series of presentations on sport-related head injuries, including concussions, relevant to scholastic and youth sports. 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.”

The speakers will describe the significance of immediate removal from activity and discuss the medical care required for a successful return to academic and athletic participation. The feature presenter will be Kevin Guskiewicz, PhD, ATC, a Kenan distinguished professor and founding director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center and the Center for the Study of Retired Athletes at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Additional presenters include Karl Kozlowski, PhD, ATC, from Canisius College, John Leddy, MD, from the University at Buffalo Sports Medicine, Jason Matuszak, MD, from the Excelsior Center for Sports Concussions, Jennifer McVige, MD, MA, from the Dent Neurologic Institute, and James Swenson, MD, from the University of Rochester.

As an EATA and NYSATA sponsored event, athletic trainers (ATs) who register in advance will earn 3.5 continuing education units (CEUs) for attending the seminar. “This opportunity will be an excellent kick-off to the EATA Convention in Buffalo, NY, which brings certified athletic trainers from the entire northeast region together for professional development,” says Smith.

The WNY Head Injury Seminar is provided free of charge thanks to sponsorship and support from NYSATA, EATA, BC-BS WNY, ImPACT, Dent Concussion Center, Balance Engineering, UB Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, First Niagara, and Excelsior Orthopaedics this.
