Concussions have been getting a lot of attention because of injuries to professional athletes. The experience of losing consciousness, the nature of these injuries and concern about what a concussion may mean for you or your athlete’s future makes concussions seem scary.

Learn about the risks, how to avoid further injury and get athletes back in the game safely at a free seminar on Tuesday, July 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Good Samaritan Medical Center, Conference Rooms A/B in Corvallis.
