BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Dr. Patrick Smith of Smith Chiropractic, recently presented a check to Governor Livingston Principal Robert Nixon and seniors student athletes Connor Bigelow and Alex Cassu to support Governor Livingston's Impact Pre-Concussion Testing Program.
Dr. Smith has donated the funding for this program for several years from the Smith Chiropractic Foundation.
"This vital and outstanding program allows Governor Livingston medical personnel to screen all student athletes and create a baseline test score for their cognitive levels," said a release from the Berkeley Heights Public School District. " Then, in the event of an injury or if our medical staff feels there could be a concussion, the student takes the test again to verify any issues and can our staff can compare the scores. It is an exceptional program that provides invaluable information to our staff to ensure the safety and well-being of our student athletes."
