If your child plays sports, or even simply rides a bike, he or she could be at risk of concussion. Learn to recognize, respond to and minimize the risk from concussions or other brain injuries with experts at the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center. Singer/songwriter Marsha Goodman-Wood will perform original songs about science and health (including one called "Wear A Helmet") while we learn how to properly fit and wear a helmet. DVBIC's Sherray Holland will explain when children should return to school and sports activities after a concussion.


FREE! Open to the public. No RSVP required.
