Free Sports Safety Clinics

Safe Kids Middlesex County, led by The Level One Trauma Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick will partner with the Metuchen School District and Johnson & Johnson to conduct two free sports safety clinics on February, 24th and 28th in the cafeteria at Metuchen High School.

The Feb. 24 session will take place at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the community, including parents, teenage athletes, recreation staff, YMCA coaches and team volunteers.  The Feb. 28 session is set for 3:15 p.m. and is aimed at middle and high school faculty and staff.

Both clinics will feature presentations from Timothy Hosea, a sports medicine specialist and orthopedic surgeon affiliated with Robert Wood Johnson, and Lauren Butler, Metuchen’s certified athletic trainer. A panel discussion will follow that also will include Lawrence Golbe, a Metuchen resident and professor of neurology at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the hospital, and John Cathcart, Metuchen’s athletic director.

Topics will include: concussion prevention and screening methods, importance of pre-participation physicals, proper hydration and spotting cardiac events, overuse injury prevention techniques, and appropriate gear and equipment.
