Congressional Hearings on TBI

As part of our continuing focus on Traumatic Brain Injuries during the month of March, we wanted to share additional information with you about this important topic.  On October 13. 2017, medical experts and NFL players testified to members of Congress on the latest research regarding CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) and their experiences and decline in their health from the constant jostling of the brain. The message to Congress was clear that more regulations and information need to be enforced especially with our youth involved in sports. The evidence provided included a 15 year old suffering from CTE, as he was involved in youth football from a young age.

The research and players stories are fascinating. This link will allow you to view the hearing, or CSPAN continues to air this important and vital information on TV.  Please take a look, as the impact to our youth is evident.
