ALEXANDRIA — Concussions are a complicated diagnosis. They are commonly missed, and myths are often believed. However, they can be treated, and a person can recover actively.

A one-hour, informative, virtual "Listen and Learn" event will take place Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The speakers are Dr. Elizabeth Jenson and Dr. Richelle Dack, both doctors of physical therapy at Alomere Health in Alexandria.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
