MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital is hosting an “Ask the Doc” seminar for parents, players and coaches of Southern Maryland youth athletic programs. The event will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, in the auditorium of Leonardtown High School.
The program will cover the most common sports injuries and their treatments, as well as when parents should seek medical attention for their children. Topics will include bones, muscles, ligaments, head injuries, and concussions -- all health-related information geared toward keeping young athletes safe. After the presentation, sports medicine physicians Dr. Emmanuel Atiemo and Dr. Christian Glaser will field questions from the audience.
We’re asking for your assistance by sharing this information and flyer with the athletes and parents of your program through email and social media. This is a free event, but registration is required. To attend or for more information, visit http://MedStarStMarys.org/AsktheDoctor <http://medstarstmarys.org/AsktheDoctor>
