Drs. Sharief Taraman, Jonathan Romain Discuss Concussions

Even minor concussions can cause lingering symptoms, two CHOC Children’s specialists tell “American Health Journal.”

Concussions can cause physical effects like headache and nausea, as well as emotional symptoms such as irritability and easy frustration, say Dr. Sharief Taraman, a pediatric neurologist, and Dr. Jonathan Romain, a neuropsychologist.

Learn more about concussions, including prevention, in “American Health Journal,” a television program that airs on PBS and other national network affiliates that reach more than 40 million households.

Each 30-minute episode features six segments with a diverse range of medical specialists discussing a full spectrum of health topics. For more information, visit www.discoverhealth.tv.

Sharief Taraman, M.D., attended medical school at Wayne State University School of Medicine and went on to complete residency training in pediatrics and pediatric neurology at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Jonathan Romain, Ph.D., completed his pre-doctoral internship at Franciscan Hospital for Children in Boston and a two-year APA accredited fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Medical College of Wisconsin.
