Nearly 60 percent of high school students in the United States participate in organized sports, and the number of younger athletes increases annually. Because back to school means back to sports for most Texas children, the identification and management of concussion is becoming an even bigger public health issue than in years past.
Thanks to a generous grant from the TMA Foundation, TMA offers a new on-demand webinar: Hard Knocks: An Update on Concussion and Texas Law. Presented by Shane Miller, MD, a pediatric sports medicine specialist at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, this new course fully explains the signs and symptoms of a concussion, initial evaluation and management of sports-related concussion, and Texas law as it relates to concussion management and Texas physicians.
Hard Knocks is accredited for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ in ethics/professional responsibility and is available for viewing at your convenience, so register now and watch it at your leisure.
