Quad City Times Story


From Andrew Peterson in today’s paper.  ARTICLE

Barring the loss of consciousness, concussions have traditionally been an afterthought among sports injuries. Recently, however, these mild traumatic brain injuries have garnered serious national attention in all levels of athletics.

Evolving technology, education and chilling research have led to reconsidered view of head injuries. Governing bodies within athletics have taken action, and 10 states have laws overseeing concussion diagnosis and treatment. National legislation is pending congressional approval.

Very good article Mr. Peterson!
