FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A doctor viewed as a worldwide authority on concussions is scheduled to provide a free lecture on the topic at the Norma Pfriem Breast Center.
Dr. Michael Lee, a board-certified pediatric doctor credentialed as a Concussion ImPACT Test Consultant, has spoken about concussions across the world, according to the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event.
On March 1, he’ll deliver his presentation, “The Truth About Concussions,” as the sixth lecture in the Chamber’s 2016-2017 Health & Wellness lecture series. The event is open to the public.
