With kids extra active during the summer, and fall sports on the horizon, it is important to be reminded about prevention and treatment of concussions. Dr. Tanya Cabrita specializes in physical rehabilitation and sports medicine at EvergreenHealth. Dr. Cabrita joined host Margaret Larson on the show today to share the important facts about concussions.

EverygreenHealth's free sports clinic is on Monday, August 18th from 6-9pm at their medical center in Kirkland. You can register for this clinic, and others online or by calling the EvergreenHealth Nurse Navigator & Heathline at 425-899-3000 option 1, but hurry as space is limited.

Safe Kids Eastside is another great resource for safety tips. Check out their concussion guide for youth and high school coaches and their concussion guide for parents.
