The Guthrie post-concussion support group for community members who have suffered a concussion will hold their first meeting of the school year on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 2 p.m. in the 4 Blue Conference Room located on the fourth floor of the Guthrie Medical Group in Sayre, Pa.

This is the seventh year that the group has offered support to athletes and their families, and has featured dozens of speakers who have shared their personal journeys of dealing with sports related post-concussion syndrome.

The first guest speaker of the year is Jackie Felicita. Ms. Felicita has been dealing with Post-Concussion Syndrome and Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome since she was in a bad car accident in 2003. She will be sharing her story about her injury and recovery. She is an LPN that works in the Dialysis department at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital. She will be returning to college in January to become a Registered Nurse.
