A conversation with
Thomas W. McAllister, MD, DC '75, DMS '78,
Millennial Professor of Psychiatry, Director of Neuropsychiatry, Dartmouth Medical School,
on "Sports Concussions and Combat Blast Injuries: Is Brain Injury Ever Mild?"
Thursday, May 20, 2010, 6:00-8:30 p.m.
The Warwick Hotel
65 W. 54th Street, New York, NY
Meet Thomas McAllister, MD, whose work focuses on the neuropsychiatric problems of individuals with traumatic brain injury, including athletes who sustain sports concussions, and previously deployed U.S. armed services, who have suffered a probable traumatic brain injury (TBI), usually from exposure to explosive devices. The variability in outcome of these injuries range from a brief period of being dazed and confused to a life-threatening event to markedly increased rates of mental illness. Dr. McAllister will cover the basics of mild brain injury, discuss potential short and long-term effects, and explain what we know about who is at greatest risk. Come learn the latest about this increasingly acknowledged public health concern.
Join other NYC alumni and friends for a special social evening and to hear from this Dartmouth faculty member--and alumnus.
