Event description

Description


The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix proudly presents Mini-Medical School, a fascinating community lecture series open to the public.

Some say that you know a concussion when you see it. If this was the case, concussions would be more widely reported and addressed with the appropriate level of concern. The last decade has seen an explosion of research and concern over concussions in children, athletes, soldiers and the general public. Come learn the current state of understanding about concussions — the testing, symptoms and recovery — and bring your questions for our college’s experts.
