Team Approach to Concussions

| comments

In late April 2008, I attended the National Sports Concussion Summit in Marina Del Rey, California. It was indeed an honor to have been asked to participate in this conference and to be the keynote speaker to an audience filled with a veritable who's who in the world of concussions in sports.

In my next few blogs I will offer some suggestions on how each of us - whether we be parent, coach, official, athletic trainer, clinician, current or former professional athlete, sports safety equipment manufacturer, whether we are involved with a local youth sports program, the national governing body of a sport, or a professional sports league, can work together with parents as a team to protect our country's most precious human resource - our children - against catastrophic injury or death from sudden impact syndrome or the serious, life-altering consequences of multiple concussions.
