COMMUNITY HEALTH CORNER
Springtime brings the return to outdoor sports. Now is a good time for parents and coaches to review the symptoms of concussions and what to do if they recognize the symptoms in one of their athletes. A concussion is a serious injury that cannot be ignored.
The CDC defines a concussion as: A type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth.
Symptoms include: Headache, Balance Problems, Nausea, Dizziness, Fuzzy or Double Vision, Drowsiness, Difficulty Concentrating or Remembering, Sensitivity to Light or Noise, and Feeling Sluggish.
There are symptoms that require an athlete to be immediately taken to an Emergency Department. These include: Worsening Headache, Seizures, Cannot Be Awakened, Repeated Vomiting, Slurred Speech, Cannot Recognize People or Places, Increasing Confusion or Irritability, Weakness in Arms or Legs, Loss of Consciousness, and Behavior Change.
If an athlete is suspected of sustaining a concussion, they should not be allowed to return to play that day!

GREENBLATT & SEAY
AN ORIGINAL MINI-MUSCIAL
APRIL 14, 2:30PM
“Noah’s Ark” is a lively adaptation of the story of Noah and the great flood. This unique Greenblatt & Seay production explores the fate of the humans and other animals on the ark, from the day they boarded, to the day they disembarked. The words, by David Seay, examine the relationships between the inhabitants of the ark, and how they managed to survive from one unpredictable day to the next. The music, by Deborah Greenblatt, suggests many of the globes great musical traditions, such as blues, Cajun, calypso, Klezmer, a “Gilbert & Sullivan”-style jig, a tango, and even a round. Greenblatt & Seay & Friends will be singing and playing a variety of instruments during the performance, including a 5-string fiddle, harmonica, guitar, tiple, bouzouki.
