Categories: Sponsors

We are happy to have the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital as a Glen Ellyn Park District sponsor this year. As part of their sponsorship, the Comer Children’s team wanted to help provide information for parents and coaches on what they need to know about protecting our kids from traumatic brain injury (TBI).

This unique webinar presented by Comer Children’s specialists will feature important learnings on ways to protect youth and adolescents from TBI and ways to identify symptoms to look for and treatments available if your child is injured.

We invite you to join the Comer Children’s team over your lunch hour (12:00 pm) on Thursday, October. 29.
