Gwinnett Medical Center Hosts Free Concussion Baseline Testing Day
23 Feb, 2017
Third-Annual Event of Particular Interest to Athletes of All Ages
On Saturday, February 25, Gwinnett Medical Center’s Concussion Institute will host the third annual Concussion Baseline Testing Day at various locations across Gwinnett County. This year’s event, held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., will include testing opportunities for children, youth, and adults.
Concussions can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone. Having a baseline of how your brain functions on a normal day, helps doctors better diagnose and treat you if you are ever concussed. It’s a simple, computer-based test that only takes about 30 minutes to complete. Informational Q&A sessions will also be offered to help families learn more about concussion signs and symptoms and what to do when an injury occurs.
Through its partnership with Gwinnett County Public Schools, Gwinnett YMCA locations and the Gwinnett County Public Library, GMC welcomes anyone ages five and up to visit the following locations to receive a free baseline:
Discovery High School - Mountain View High School - North Gwinnett High School - Peachtree Ridge High School - Shiloh High School - JM Tull Gwinnett Family YMCA - Robert D. Fowler YMCA - Hamilton Mill Library (Pediatric Testing Site)
Registration is required and space is limited. To register testers ages 12 and up, visit gwinnettmedicalcenter.org/baselineday. Call 678-312-7880 to register testers ages 5-11.
