Football and your brain-Is tackle football appropriate for kids?

Friday, October 12, 2018 • 3 Cheshvan 5779

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us as we welcome Dr. Robert Stern, Phd for this Shabbat service and talk. Dr. Stern is a Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Anatomy and Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine. A major focus of his research involves the long-term effects of repetitive brain trauma in athletes, including the neurodegenerative disease, CTE.

His discussion will be of interest to all, but especially parents of kids who participate in all sorts of contact sports (not just football). Brain trauma is recognized in sports such as soccer that are not traditionally categorized as “contact."

Special Musical Guest, Cantor Robbie Solomon. Stay for an oneg after services.

Free child care.

The talk and oneg are sponsored by the Brotherhood's Ben Adler Memorial Health Fund.
