District 186, SIU Med School Plan Concussion Seminar Wednesday


Springfield Public Schools and the SIU School of Medicine will offer a seminar this week for student-athletes, parents, and the community on the issue of concussions. 

 

It’s a hot topic in the athletic world, especially because of the risk of lingering damage for football players who experience multiple concussions. 

 

Dr. Wendell Becton is on the SIU staff… but also serves as a team physician and concussion specialist for the St. Louis Cardinals.  He will talk about the short-term and long-term effects of concussions on athletes. 

 

The free seminar will be held Wednesday evening at 7pm at the Springfield High School auditorium.
