Guskiewicz At It Again…

5 Jan

Kevin Guskiewicz, head of the Center for the Study of Retired Athletes at the University of North Carolina, sent a press release out yesterday stating that BOTH the NFL and NFLPA awarded $100,000 grants to his facility for further concussion research.

The center has already studied 41 retired NFL players, Guskiewicz said. The new grants will enable the center to study another 45 former college players – who didn’t play in the NFL – and compare the data.

“That will help us answer the magic question: What is the effect of the additional exposure?” Guskiewicz said.

This good news from the NFL, NFLPA, and UNC as furthering information on this issue is very important.

    Hello Dr. Guskiewicz. I spoke with you some time last year about obtaining a data set on head injuries. I am a doctoral student; this study that you are proposing is extremely similar to my dissertation. How can I get involved?
