MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. --  Dr. Anna Alshansky, pediatric neurologist of Mount Kisco Medical Group, will present at an education session, "Concussions and The Youth Athlete" on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m at Northern Westchester Hospital.

She will share what happens during a pediatric neurology consultation, when there is need for further testing, principles of concussion management along with the short-term and long-term complications of concussions. She will also review the current recommendations from the American Academy of Neurology.

This discussion, part of the hospital’s ongoing speaker series, will focus on sports and recreation-related brain injuries, specifically concussions, among children and adolescents. Parents, coaches and athletic trainers are all encouraged to attend.

Alshansky is board certified in Neurology with special qualifications in Child Neurology, and is a pediatric neurologist who has recently joined Mount Kisco Medical Group.
