Concussions: the "invisible" injury
STATE COLLEGE —
In recognition of Brain Awareness Week, students at Penn State Altoona took part in a free seminar, focusing on 'Concussions in Sport'. The discussion was led by Dr. Hayley Russell, Assistant Professor at Penn State Altoona. Dr. Russell wanted the audience to really understand the differences that come with enduring a concussion through sports and how people need to be aware of this seemlingly "invisible" injury.
Brain Awareness Week caps off on Saturday with 'Neuroscience For Kids' that starts at 9 a.m. and goes till 2 p.m. Find out more on their website: http://www.altoona.psu.edu/brain/
