Last month I was compelled to send an email to the Whitman community regarding my growing concern about the number of students with concussions we have this year, and I included in my posting some signs of concussions. In response, a Whitman community member, Dr. Michael Singer, met with me to discuss my hopes regarding this subject. I indicated that I was hoping to have an informative evening event for parents, students, and coaches. Dr. Singer volunteered to put together a panel of experts, and he has done a remarkable job. I am writing to invite the Whitman, BCC, and Walter Johnson communities to attend a panel discussion on April 19th from 7:30p.m. to 9 p.m. The experts listed below will discuss their observations and will field questions from the audience. Please join us.
