Recovering from Concussions
Local author Dr. Audrey Paul will speak on the newest developments for treating concussions.
Dr. Audrey Paul, author of Concussion: Your Game Plan for Recovery, will be joining us on Tuesday, May 18 for a presentation and discussion on what has been learned about concussions and the best ways to treat them. This is part of the club's Local Author Series.
In her book, Dr. Paul shares research that shows how past approaches to treating concussions were often ineffective and sometimes harmful and how more active techniques are now producing better results. This talk may be of interest to athletes, family members of athletes, those who have suffered concussions and others with interest in this timely topic.
Dr Paul, a resident of Westport and Harvard alumna, holds both an MD and a PhD from the Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine. She is an Assistant Professor at NYU Long Island School of Medicine and served as the Chair of Pediatric Emergency Medicine section of the American College of Emergency Physicians. She founded and is director of Advanced Concussion Solutions of Garden City, NY and Westport, CT. She is currently the alternate chancellor for the ACEP Pediatric Emergency Committee.
