Darnaby students learn about concussions

Originally posted November 1, 2018

Fourth grade has been learning about concussions lately as a part of Darnaby's PLTW module on the human brain. Teachers Arron Parsons and Kristen Robinson invited Dan Newman, Union’s head athletic trainer, to talk to students about concussions, and how he identifies and treats concussions in athletes. "We used a light pen and went through several balance tests that he uses when assessing for a concussion," Parsons said.
