Sports-related concussions propose a significant health risk to student-athletes but are called an “invisible injury” because signs and symptoms may not be obvious.  Find out what you should know about concussions during a free virtual seminar presented on Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 9am.  The general public is encouraged to attend the live event featuring CSUN alumni and experts in the field to gain knowledge, awareness, and insights on this important topic. Registration is required and spaces are limited. 

The featured interprofessional panel will discuss the physical, cognitive, socio-emotional and sleep aspects of concussions. They include the head sports doctor for CSUN athletics Dr. Eric Sletten; certified athletic trainer Brittany Bingham; speech-language pathologists, Dr. Felicia Conlan, Dr. Lisa D’Angelo (Sacramento State) and Dr. Nancy Cohick (CSULA); performance coach Aaron Weinstein; attorney David Bobrosky '95, and certified radiologic technologist Lisa Naugle '89.
