UI to host community seminar on young athletes and concussions

Specialists from UI Sports Medicine and UI Athletics will discuss the latest information about concussions and how to keep youth athletes safer at a free community seminar from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19, at the University of Iowa Athletics Hall of Fame Roy G. Karro Building, located at 2425 Prairie Meadow Drive in Iowa City.

Iowa recently passed a new law concerning youth athletes and concussions. The law, coupled with advancements in medical guidelines and technology, helps professionals evaluate and treat concussions better than ever before.

The expert panel will discuss what the new law means for coaches, players and parents, the importance of sideline evaluations, guidelines for treatment, and diagnostic tests.

Refreshments will be provided. Advance registration for this free community seminar is encouraged. Call 319-335-8886 or 877-MED-IOWA, or go online to www.uihealthcare.org/communityseminars.

If you have a disability and require an accommodation to participate in this program, call 319-384-1745.
