What You Need to Know About Concussions:
From Athletes to Older Adults
FREE Lecture on The Latest Science on Brain Trauma as we Age and What You can Do to Keep Healthy
Presented By Dr Joseph Maroon
The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Everything we eat, do, think or exposed to will affect the billions of complex biochemical reactions that occur every second in our brain. Brain trauma can have far-reaching effects on the brain days, months and even decades after it occurs. Only recently has medical science dispelled the myth that suffering a concussion is like hitting your arm; “just shake it off and get back in the game”. What many fail to realize is the scope of brain trauma and concussion is greater than the world of sports and kids. Brain trauma, at any age, can have prolonged and serious consequences including a greater risk for early dementia and even Alzheimer’s disease.
At 7:00 pm on Thursday June 16th at the Kean Theater at St. Barnabas Health System, renowned neurosurgeon, concussion and nutrition expert, Dr Joseph Maroon, will discuss the latest science on concussion. This topic is heard daily in the news reports, but do you really know the facts behind sport-related concussion and why brain trauma, especially falls in adults, can have profound effects on long-term brain health? Much of Dr. Maroon’s discussion will center on what are the best choices you can make today to improve your brain health. Dr Maroon will provide those in attendance better brain health choices that can actually make your brain stronger.
This lecture is important for those who have questions about long-term brain health but are confused by media reports and limited facts on the topic of concussion. Please register for this FREE lecture by calling 724-444-5570 or go to St.barnabashealthsystem.com.
