With back to school activities and sports in our near future, we all want to keep our kids healthy and safe. So, we turned to Dr. Kate Mullin with the New England Institute for Neurology and Headache to find out what you need to know when it comes to preventing and treating concussions.
Katie is mom to two young boys, and is very excited to bring her experience as a registered dietician and wellness to her hometown, where she can help individuals and families looking to live a healthier lifestyle. After years in finance, she followed her passion for nutrition and wellness and spent time in NYC working with corporations on wellness in the workplace. Though Katie misses the city, and especially the Japanese handrolls from her favorite spot in Brooklyn, she and her family love being back! Katie is an organizer at heart, loves working with people, and is constantly coming up with creative ways to make eating more enjoyable for kids – and adults. We’re glad to have you back Katie!
What happens if you (or your child) has had a concussion but symptoms last for weeks or even months beyond the normal recovery time? The culprit could be Post Concussive Syndrome. We spoke to Dr. Kate Mullin with The New England Institute for Neurology and Headache in Stamford about the treatment and outlook.
