Thank you Dr. Papa-Rugino and Southern Ocean Medical Center on the presentation of concussion awareness and baseline testing this evening to Southern Athletics.

Next week, on Thursday, August 14, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the 9/10 Building Library will be open for students who choose to take the pre-concussion IMPACT test. The 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. time was chosen to coincide with evening practices therein making it more convenient for the athletes who would like to test.... Staff from SOMC Concussion Center and Southern’s IT Department will be on campus throughout the evening to assist with the administration of the IMPACT tests so as to get the athletes who have practice that night back onto the field as soon possible. The cost for the IMPACT test will be $5.00 and all athletes are encouraged to participate.

Forms are located on the homepage and Health Issues section of Other Information of the Southern Regional Athletic Website at
