Local medical professionals in Grand Valley, Colorado are joining forces to combat “an epidemic of concussions,” according to a local television station.
Leading the charge, according to a recent story, is Community Hospital, which is funding and developing a special Concussion Task Force
Job one is to “understand how we are managing concussions currently in the valley,” said Dr. Dan Mistry, a primary care physician.
Chris Thomas, the CEO of Community Hospital, said his company is expanding to better “go after this problem. (A)nd our partnership with Dr. Mistry and the other physicians that are involved is going to be a great partnership going forward.”
Dr. Mistry added that “the goal (of the Task Force) is to develop a uniform protocol for diagnosis testing and management of concussions in the Grand Valley.”
Plans have already been made to host an “Impact Seminar” on July 12th and a 2nd Sports Medicine Conference on July 19th.
