Over the past few years, attention focused on the impact of concussions and brain injury in the NFL. Attention soon turned to youth sports, and several states have begun to debate the issues. Tennessee has enacted a new law that requires coaches to remove any athlete from competition who shows signs of concussion, promotes education and understanding of symptoms of head injury and concussion, and establishes policy in regards to return to play. This applies to all public and private schools as well as to any recreational league for children under age 18.
CABIA is pleased to announce that Chris Nowinski , past sports and entertainment figure, author, activist, will be speaking at the fundraiser at the Mill, March 27, 2014. Chris is instrumental in bringing national attention and promoting education and policy change about sports concussions and brain injury.
