SPEAK OUT! NewsBit . . . . . . . . White House Concussion Summit

Newsboy thWhite House Concussion Summit

 

Parents, coaches, teachers, and others are becoming increasingly concerned that youth sports can affect children’s brains and in many cases cause life-altering injuries (see “Children’s Brains at Risk,” in my “So Whaddya Think?” category, May 28, 2014). To address this epidemic-like problem and to increase awareness of the hazards of concussions, President Obama held the Healthy Kids & Safe Sports Concussion Summit today. The President called for more research into the brain and in better equipment. Several organizations, both commercial and publically funded, have made commitments of money and effort to find a solution to this “invisible crisis.” The goal is a national plan that will cover all youth sports.
