"Concussion" is one of the scariest words ever in youth sports.  But, knowledge is power.  So, the Mighty Meredith Project is excited to announce a free discussion from Chris Nowinski, Ph. D.  Chris is the co-founder and CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to solving the sports concussion crisis through advocacy, education, policy development, and medical research. The CLF is dedicated to advancing the study, treatment and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes and other at-risk groups. Chris is also a co-founder of the Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center.

Chris’s talk should be of particular interest to all student athletes and their families, athletic directors, youth and secondary school sports coaches, as well as the general public.

“Chris Nowinski has been an inspiration to me and to many others who have suffered concussions or other traumatic brain injuries,“ said Meredith Casey, founder of the Mighty Meredith Project. “After meeting Chris and his team earlier this year, we are very excited to have him speak to the local community about the impact of brain injuries.”

Join us Tuesday, December 4th at the North Reading Performing Arts Center, 189 Park Street, beginning at 7:00pm.

The event is free, but registration is required at: https://www.mightymeredith.com/clfregistration.
