Free Concussion Screenings For Athletes

Georgia Southern University School of Health and Kinesiology faculty Nicholas Murray, Ph.D., assistant professor of kinesiology, and Barry Munkasy, Ph.D., associate professor of kinesiology, have teamed up with Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation and Clark Medical Group to offer comprehensive concussion baseline and post-injury screenings to help injured athletes return to play in the safest and most effective manner.

In the event a concussion has occurred, individuals will have the opportunity to complete a follow up assessment at Clark Medical Group or at Georgia Southern University’s Hanner Biomechanics Lab.

The event is intended for adolescents, but concussion screenings will be open to the general public from 7-9 p.m. on Aug. 1-3 and Aug. 8-10, at Clark Medical Group in Statesboro. The walk-in appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis. For more info Visit GeorgiaSouthern.edu.
