When: Sun., Aug. 27, 7 p.m.
The physical and mental toll of concussions will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, August 27 at 7 p.m. The program, titled “Concussions: A Former NFL Player Speaks Out,” features a filmed interview with former NFL tight end Ben Utecht, who suffered five confirmed concussions during his career. “My concussions, as they continued to happen, had a greater and greater impact on my personality,” Utecht explains. “Loss of short- and long-term memory is an issue I deal with, and I’m only in my 30s.” During the program, participants will have the opportunity to share ideas for reducing the risk of concussions in sports at all levels. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13 th St., Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
