CARMEL, N.Y. -- As concussion rates rise, Putnam Hospital's Rehabilitation Department is looking to educate the community.

"Concussion Management in our Community" takes place from 8:30 a.m to noon on Saturday, Oct. 21 at Putnam Hospital Center’s Michael T. Weber Auditorium at 670 Stoneleigh Ave in Carmel.

The panel will feature physicians, physical therapists and other leading experts in the field.

“The effects of concussions are all over the news so we wanted to bring all of our resources together to help the community manage the long-term impacts of it," Matthew Kriniske, Putnam Hospital Center's Director of Rehabilitation said.

While concussions are described as mild traumatic brain injuries, they can be serious and result in long-lasting damage, Kriniske said. A person who has had one concussion is also at a greater risk of suffering another, Kriniske said.

The program will cover a wide range of topics, including emergency management, neurology, sports-related injuries, management, and rehabilitation. Patients who have had concussions will also discuss their personal experiences.

Panelists include physical therapist Vicki Seppell, speech therapist Jenny Kalanz, and physical therapist James Mangano.

Registration is required. For more information, call 845-279-5711 ext. 2474
